When Charlotte Price lost her sister-in-law to a brain tumour, she was left devastated.

Sarah, a teacher for the deaf, was 40 years old when she underwent emergency surgery for a highly aggressive brain tumour known as a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

Despite surgery, Sarah died in January 2015 just three weeks later leaving her three-year-old daughter Samara.

Four years on from the tragedy, Charlotte is now hoping to make a difference by running in the London Marathon.

A mum of two herself, Charlotte said: “I’m excited and anxious about the marathon but I know it will be an amazing experience.

"It will all be worth it, knowing that I’m helping to bring us closer to a brain tumour cure."

The Kingston woman is aiming to raise £4,000 towards research into brain tumours.

“Sarah’s death devastated our family and she has left a big hole in our lives," Charlotte added.

"She was a wonderful mother and Samara is now flourishing into a wonderful little girl, but sadly without Sarah there to see it.

"I wouldn’t wish what happened to Sarah on anyone else and so any donations would be gratefully received.”
