Story

Hello all!

I lost my much-loved wife Jacqui to cancer on Halloween last year. She was such a positive soul and fought very hard against that horrible disease cancer. I only had a relatively short time with her [3 years in total] but I am grateful that I knew her at all - my life is immeasurably richer for the universe's gift of Jacqui, my second soul-mate. I also lost my first wife Nancy [also a much-loved soul-mate] to cancer in October 2008. Thus this October I am determined that something good will happen rather than something bad. And the something good is a 'lttle stroll' to Petra to raise money for Macmillan. I have always wanted to go to Petra but I never realised that fate would decree that this journey must be undertaken on foot! My elder brother Mark will be there to keep me company and we would both be grateful if you would support us on this mission...
