Kat Huggins is running the Edinburgh Marathon for Saving Faces!

Kat in training

This May, Kat Huggins will be running her first marathon to raise money for Saving Faces.

Saving Faces is a charity very close to Kat’s heart. Kat’s mother in law Maryann sadly passed away from a complication after surgery for mouth cancer in 2015. Our Chief Executive, Professor Iain Hutchison was Maryann’s consultant.

Kat says ‘facial cancer is not just the devastation of the disease itself, but the psychological and emotional aftermath, which is just as hard to deal with. If Maryann was with us today she would be running this with me, but she will be there in spirit.’
