Romford man runs London Marathon for Asthma UK in memory of sister
A 44-year-old Romford man and his brother will run their seventh London Marathon in memory of their sister, who died of asthma.
Lorry driver Martyn Brace and his brother Anthony hope to raise about �4,000 for Asthma UK after losing their youngest sister Denise to an asthma-related heart attack in 2004.
Martyn, of Collier Row, said Asthma UK’s help and advice was “an indescribable lifeline for millions of people who suffer every day with this terrible condition.”
Martyn’s daughter, Molly, nine, was diagnosed with the condition aged 18 months, leading to many hospital visits over the next five years.
After receiving information from Asthma UK’s Adviceline, the family requested medication for Molly and made appointments for her with an asthma consultant.
