On July 1st 2018 I will be taking part in the Grand Canal Challenge for the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital. I have set myself this challenge because of the dedication and support that Royal Brompton and Harefield have shown to my family.

My niece was born with a severe congenital heart defect and has had all of her open heart surgeries at Royal Brompton Hospital, thanks to all the great work and research done at Royal Brompton, my niece is thriving and happy at university.

In May 2018, my mother was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer, a rare cancer of the lungs. It has been a hard time for my family, but the commitment and care shown towards us from the staff at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital, has really helped us get through this difficult time.

Please donate anything that you can to this amazing charity so that others can have the support that my family has experienced Peju Arole
