A VETERINARY pharmacist is preparing to run the Great East Anglia 10km in aid of The Mouth Cancer Foundation, after being inspired by the brave wife of a vet at the March practice where she works.
Chloe Horner, 26, decided to enter the run at King’s Lynn, after hearing how 71-year-old Robyn Joly from March has been battling against head and neck cancer for almost 20 years.
Robyn, the wife of Amical Veterinary Centre vet Craig Joly, has no tongue, and has been unable to eat for two years.
Chloe, from Murrow, said: “I am running the race for Robyn, who is an incredibly strong individual and the charity has helped her in her fight against cancer. It is clear for all to see what an amazingly strong, motivate and determined spirit she is.”
Mr Joly said: “I am very proud that Chloe has decided to do this. Head and neck cancer is one of the forgotten cancers. Robyn is a very brave lady and is a fighter, she has never given up.”
