Dentist, 24, hailed as an inspiration.

DENTIST Caron George will be running the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday to raise money and awareness for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.

The recently qualified dentist, who works at a practice in Tongwynlais, is preparing for her first half marathon by training in the gym and going for runs with her friends.

"I decided to take part as a personal challenge and to raise funds for the Mouth Cancer Foundation, which does much to increase awareness of mouth cancer," said Caron, 24, from Cardiff. "Mouth cancer has such poor survival rates due to late detection of the symptoms."

Dr Vinod Joshi, founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, said: "Caron is an inspiration. She is doing a tough challenge to raise funds which will help us to increase awareness of mouth cancer and provide support for mouth cancer patients and carers."

In the UK, nearly 8,000 people are diagnosed with the disease every year.
