Shelley Rouse's Story

"12 months after being diagnosed with Grade 4 Glioblastoma, my 27 year old sister Pam lost her battle with brain cancer. My goal is to run the London 2018 Marathon and raise funds so that we can take a step toward never hearing again 'I am sorry you have brain cancer, there is no cure'."
