Date published: 11 August 2017

A & F Sprinklers raised £4,775 in this year’s Great Manchester Run for The Christie.

Taking part from the Queensway-based company were Julian Stansfield, Liam Worsley, Dean Taylor, Paul Jones, Nick Cook, Pete Gregson and Jordan Saywood.

Mr Stansfield, commercial director, who was treated at the Christie Hospital, said: “I was diagnosed with cancer of appendix and had the treatment Cytoreduction with HIPEC in February 2016 on World Cancer Day.

“Cytoreductive surgery is often paired with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) to effectively remove peritoneal mesothelioma from the abdomen and increase the average life expectancy of patients.

“Cytoreductive surgery is a surgical procedure used to remove tumors from patients with peritoneal mesothelioma. When it’s paired with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), it considerably increases life expectancy and reduces the rate of cancer recurrence.

Jason Griffin said: “We chose the Christie Hospital as our charity this year, as Julian wanted to repay them for the treatment and care he received.”
