THE tragic loss of his wife to cancer has inspired South Yorkshire politician Dan Jarvis to run the London Marathon.
The Barnsley Central MP, whose wife Caroline died of bowel cancer in 2010, is taking part with his father, in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Mr Jarvis said: “Cancer knows no boundaries. It doesn’t take into consideration a person’s wealth, social status or family circumstances.
“I hope to play my part in raising money that can be used for vital research, new technology and improved patient care across the UK.”
