A woman who received life-saving surgery has pledged to dust off her running shoes to take part in a series of events to raise cash for the hospital.
Kate Baker, 35, from Colchester, spent six days at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, after being diagnosed with a benign brain tumour in December.
Kate vowed to show her appreciation for the care she received after she had two major operations on her head and was discharged in perfect health on Christmas Eve.
Sticking to her word, Kate completed two 10k runs in May and hopes to take part in a 10-mile race in Lee Valley in June.
“Based on that race it will take my total race mileage up to 47 miles, which is the distance between Colchester General and Queen’s.
“A fitting tribute to the two hospitals that worked together to save my life.”
