A SALES manager from Weston-super-Mare will run a half-marathon to raise money for the hospital which treated her for seven years.
Jeni Chandler, aged 34 and of Kent Avenue, suffered from the kidney illness nephrotic syndrome as a child.
She was treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, and will run the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon on Sunday to try to raise £1,000 for the hospital.
She said: “I was under the care of Great Ormond Street for seven years and they essentially saved my life.
“I cannot thank them enough, so doing this is a small token of my gratitude to the paediatric nephrology team.
“The tireless work the teams at the hospital do to make little lives more comfortable and to develop cures and treatments often goes unnoticed.”
