This  St. George’s Day, David Stuart-Smith, managing partner at Andrew Grant, will be joining nearly 40 thousand other runners at the starting line of the London Marathon. He’s running on behalf of a charity that funds research into the most common cancer in men.

 
David Stuart-Smith is running the London Marathon and his place is sponsored by the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.  He has committed to raise £2,500 for the charity.

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives and over 47,000 are diagnosed every year - that's 130 men every day.  Over 330,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer.

David said “As some of you will know I was diagnosed with prostate cancer some five years ago and had radical surgery shortly afterwards from which I made a rapid and (hopefully) full recovery - partly aided by my daily running regime which I started some 35 years ago in preparation for what was then the inaugural Snowdonia marathon.

Last year I went to see my daughter Polly (who works for a Cornish children’s bereavement charity) run the London Marathon and at a post-event reception party in Pall Mall she asked me if I would join her in the 2017 London Marathon. Initially I told her not to be so ridiculous but after having slept on it I decided that I could perhaps try and repay for some of the lifesaving treatment from which I had benefited.”

One of the first people to donate most generously to David’s fund was Andrew Grant who himself has also received treatment for prostate cancer.  Andrew is a patron of Rory the Robot Worcestershire, a charity which is helping to fund a surgical robotic system which is imperative for the future of prostate cancer surgery in the county.

 

Andrew said: “Like David I too was diagnosed with prostate cancer and am so very grateful for the excellent treatment I received.  I know there have been extraordinary advances in the treatment of this cancer, early diagnosis being one of them.  Although much more is now known about the condition there is still a great deal of work to be done.  I am delighted to donate to such a worthwhile cause and wish David all the very best.  We will all be cheering him on!”

Andrew Grant are proud of our heritage in supporting worthy causes.  If you would like to make a donation, however little, to help David reach his target -  he,all of us at Andrew Grant and the Prostate Cancer Research Centre would be truly grateful.
