Katherine was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia last year and spent months in hospital. During that time she wrote a blog about her good and bad days, which was published in her local newspaper.

He was flown to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, where the skill and dedication of the staff saved his life. He's now run a marathon every week for the past 2 years all over the world, to raise money for them. Jane Hesketh reports.
