An Ellesmere Port woman ran the Chester Half Marathon on Sunday to raise money for her daughter’s friend, Cameron Rowley, who is undergoing treatment for a rare form of cancer.

Julie Lewis said: “I did it in 2:16 and I am very happy with that. I decided to do Chester Half Marathon last year to set myself a challenge but as there was a young lad in my daughter’s school (with cancer), I asked all my friends and family to sponsor me and give as much they could to Cameron’s gofundme page.”

Cameron, eight, lives on the Stanney estate with his mum Jacqueline Rowley and brother Ethan and spends lots of time with his dad Brenden Rowley and his half twin brothers Benjamin and Jack Ryan.

The Oaks Primary School pupil was diagnosed with desmoplastic small-round-cell tumour (DSRCT) last month and started treatment immediately.

Cameron’s family and friends are holding a Family Fun Day at The Rake (formerly Rake Hall) on Saturday, May 23, from noon-4pm, where there will be a bouncy castle, face painting, henna art, raffles and a disco.
