Katie has never been good in a crisis. She once saw her sister accidentally chop off the top of her finger but couldn’t call an ambulance because she had fainted. At 19, Katie returned from a university night out and saw her front door had been kicked in. She waited until her housemates arrived 40 minutes later to find almost all of their possessions stolen.
When her mum is diagnosed with cancer, she freezes again.
When Katie meets an elderly man, George, in Derby Hospital’s radiotherapy waiting room, everything changes.
One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetimes. It can happen to anyone. People who run the marathon… they’ve only got themselves to blame.
A show about love, life and running for a really long time from the multi-award-winning writer Katie Arnstein.
