A moving and inspiring story in a recent edition of The Sun brought to light one brave young woman's fight against cancer and her determination to run next month's London Marathon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and thereby help those, like herself, a battling this condition.

For the many millions who read her story, and that of her boyfriend David, it was an emotional account that prompted so many to donate to their justgiving.com page.

But for us in the licensing industry the reasons to donate are closer to home - as David is one of us! Hannah's boyfriend who is running alongside her next month is David Adams - talented National Account Manager of Mookie Toys, the company behind hit licensed toys like the Disney ScuttleBug and ScrambleBug!

David says: "This year’s London Marathon will be my fifth Marathon but by far the closest to my heart. I have raised money over the years for many different, well deserving charities but running for Macmillan alongside Hannah will be my proudest. Cancer has affected me and my family for a number of years so to give back to all those that have helped is something I will take great pride and passion in. Since Hannah and I got together her determination in life has amazed me. After she said she wanted to run the London Marathon I knew I wanted to be by her side through all the training and the 26.2 painful miles. So bring it on!

Hannah adds: "Up until this point I have dealt with my condition very privately, I haven’t always been vocal or shared my story on social media- understandably this therefore may be a shock to many. However, my motivation for taking part is the hope that the revealing of my own story will raise the awareness & the funding for Macmillan to keep providing their support to others battling cancer. By Race day, I will be in my eighth year of Cancer treatment. I am running the London marathon WITH cancer, AGAINST cancer for everybody who cannot do it for themselves. I will be running to fight for my life, for their lives and for all the lives that have been lost."
