    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Back in August 2015 I was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive form of Blood Cancer known as Diffuse Large B Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. So began the biggest and hardest challenge of my life.

    I have endured and embraced two full protocols of intensive chemotherapy, stem cell conditioning chemotherapy and then a full Stem Cell Transplant. In February 2017 I relapsed for a 3rd time and I was told I potentially only had a few weeks to live.

    In the eyes of the medical world this disease is no longer curable and my time is limited. Numbness, anger, bitterness, injustice, disbelief do not quite explain how you feel when hearing this and staring your own mortality directly in the face!!

    However through my positivity and focus, the help and support of my family and friends, and the setting of many individual goals, I am still here. I have a desire to live and am determined to embrace every day to the full and wish to encourage anyone undergoing hardship to do the same. This is why I chose to set up the 6 Peaks Challenge.

    The 6 Peaks are a huge personal challenge to myself considering my ongoing fluctuating health. It includes Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis, Slieve Donard, Mount Snowdon, Pen-y-Fan, finishing with Cornwall's very own highest peak Brown Willy. The challenge is also designed to demonstrate and inspire others. I haven't given up, my choice is to keep living, keep fighting and keep my eyes up and forward.

    The dates of the challenge are 24th September to 1st October 2017.

      I'm officially a terminally ill blood cancer patient. I've been battling Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma since August 2015 but I'm still here. Please help me raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support's Mustard Tree centre in Plymouth, and they're outreach centre in Liskeard, Cornwall.
