This year, our charity MDS UK was lucky enough to have 2 runners in the 2017 London Marathon Alec Holah, brother in law of Gavin Hepburn, who passed away a year ago, and Kirsty Crozier, an MDS Clinical Nurse Specialist in Oxford and Member of the MDS Committee.

We took this opportunity to conduct several interviews about the marathon, our charity and what it means to work closely with us.

We thank each one of our interviewees deeply for their kind, dedicated, thoughtful and generous input. They are wonderful friends, very close to our dear charity.
