Jane and Mike Tomlinson
Agent: Mark Lucas
Jane Tomlinson was told she had breast cancer at the age of 26. Ten years later, she was given three months to live. She went on to complete the Florida Iron Man Contest, three London Marathons, then cycled from Rome to Leeds, and from San Francisco to New York, created the Run for Life – and raised nearly £2 million for charity. Her inspirational experiences are shared in her memoirs, You Can't Take it with You, The Luxury of Time and How Good is That? (Pocket Books), all co-authored with her husband Mike. She died – a national hero – on 3rd September 2007.
