Hi I’m Shurma Pallan! I’m a Specialty Doctor at John Taylor Hospice and I’m fundraising for this amazing charity by doing the Virtual London Marathon October 2021.
For those of you who know me, and those of you who don’t – I don’t run at all and have never walked 26.2 miles in one day either! This will be a huge, personal challenge for me and whilst training and getting fitter, I’m going to learn how to do some running as well. I aim to power walk my way through the marathon and who knows, I may well jog across the last mile or two also!
John Taylor Hospice in Birmingham provides expert specialist care for people living with a terminal condition and their loved ones in their homes and on the Inpatient Unit. We believe ‘every moment matters’ and we help support people to live well and improve their quality of life so that they can continue doing what is most important to them.
Everyone deserves the very best palliative and end of life care and to know their loved ones will also feel supported. Working with the team at John Taylor Hospice over the last year, and during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been very difficult but yet extremely rewarding to know the work we do makes such a huge difference to our patients and their families towards the end of their life.
I want to fundraise as much as I can to support the fantastic work we do. If you can sponsor me not only will you be donating to this wonderful charity and do your good deed for the day but you will also be egging me on with my training and targets! I would be very grateful for your support and kind words too, thank you for making every moment matter!
