Customer Care Support Co-Ordinator, Deepti Pandya, 25 from Birmingham has completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise as much money as possible for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation loves this great initiative from tongue cancer survivor, James McNaught, 45, who started 'Cancer On Board'. Based on the style of the ‘Baby on Board’ badges that are regularly seen now on busy tube trains.   ‘Cancer on Board’ is a badge for sick cancer patients to ensure they too get the chance of a seat. 

The countdown is now on as there are only 2 months to go until the 11th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk at 12 Noon in London’s Hyde Park.
