Neil Howie

Neil Howie is the Deputy Principal at an international school in Belgrade, Serbia. He is from England, where he started teaching, and he has also taught in Nigeria and Austria.

In January 2014, at the age of 45, he underwent surgery to remove a tumour and was diagnosed with Stage III bowel cancer. He underwent chemotherapy (FOLFOX4) for six months in Serbia.

Whilst still having to be regularly tested upon the end of his chemotherapy Neil began training for the London Marathon in 2015 (not having run for over 7 years), using this event to raise money for Europacolon, Bowel Cancer UK and the Serbian bowel cancer charity.
