Cancer survivor: Why I’ll run a marathon on wedding day

A cancer survivor has told BBC 5 live how she is spending her wedding day running a marathon.

Jackie Scully found a lump on her right breast on Christmas Eve in 2013, the following day her fiancé Duncan proposed after 13 years together.

Speaking to Adrian Chiles, she explained that it was her fiancé who wanted her to run a marathon on their wedding day, which will take place on the Cutty Sark ship at 7:30am.

She will then run the London marathon later that day, where she hopes to raise £15k for cancer charities.
