Tube-fed father defying odds to run the London Marathon

A father-of-two is set to be one of the first enterally tube-fed people to run the London Marathon. Gary Taylor, 46, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, wants to inspire others by showing you can live “a relatively normal life” despite needing to be enterally fed. The electrical engineer was diagnosed with a rare tumour in his neck in 2016. Fortunately, the tumour was benign, however it required invasive surgery which means that Gary will probably never eat a normal meal again.
