Jude is a Dinosaur and animal-loving three-year-old. He has a thirst for knowledge about how things work and why things happen. He loves Elton John and even received a Christmas card, present and video message from him!

He has warmed the hearts of so many with his smile and attitude towards everything that he has, and still is, going through.

In July 2021 Jude was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer that has a 40-50% chance of long-term survival at diagnosis.

Since then, Jude has undergone extensive NHS treatment, but we are raising funds for further treatment, either to get Jude into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if the NHS treatment does go to plan.

To support the effort, I will be running the Yorkshire Marathon on Sunday 16 October 2022 dressed as an inflatable dinosaur. This will (hopefully!) be a Guinness World Record attempt, confirmation from Guinness World Records pending.
