Then Darren started getting backache. He went to the doctor’s to get it checked. Scans showed he had a tumour in his sacrum and was told that his metastatic cancer was incurable. Now, Darren lives day by day, and week by week.
Darren said: “Before diagnosis I was a keen runner and cyclist. I have competed in 4 London Marathon for various cancer related charities including CRUK and The Prudential 100 London - Surrey. And various other running events including CRUK Winter Run, Vitality 10000 and the British 10K.
“Unfortunately, I cannot run anymore as treatment rendered me disabled. I still try desperately to keep fit, and I am so determined to be as positive as I can be every single day.”
