AFTER seeing the effects of Leukaemia first hand, Juliet Williams is determined to raise cash to help treat the disease.

Juliet, 37, of Roan Walk, Royston, will be taking part in the Virgin London marathon on behalf of Children with Leukaemia, a charity which researches new treatments of the devastating disease.

Mum of two Juliet said: "I had leukaemia as a child, so I know what an awful disease it is. And I worked in the cancer unit at Addenbrooke's hospital with some of their younger patients.

"So when I was given the place in the marathon I decided to run for Children with Leukaemia, it's a charity I've wanted to make a contribution to for a long while," she said.

She said: "I go out with the runners every Saturday anyway, but the most I've done so far is 10 or 11 miles, so I need to up the pace of my training in the next few weeks.
