Story

Grant "Sammy" Coutts is one of the most down to earth genuine guys you will ever meet. A real family man, hard working and as straightforward as you could hope for. Grant has been a dedicated hard grafting bodybuilder all his adult life..winning many many trophies with his compact solid chiselled quality physique. A bodybuilding career that culminated with a 3rd place at the Universe competition last year.
Tragically Grant has been diagnosed with a very serious Cancer. He has already been through surgery to remove a tumour the size of a grapefruit from his liver. The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and beyond. Realistically Grant is now looking at trying to enjoy the time he has left. As I write this Grant is trying a new immunotherapy drug. Should it "work" he has between 1 and 3 years left. If it does not work then things are looking very bleak and time is of the essence. As a Cancer survivor I can tell you first hand how dark these times are. The thought of leaving your loved ones is heartbreaking. Grant has a wee boy who will struggle to remember his dad as he grows up. Kerrie, his partner has been a devoted Mother and companion for years.
The money we hope to raise is to send Grant and his family on a holiday of a lifetime. One last big chance to make memories that will stay live and vivid in the hearts of his family long after Grant has gone.
Please please donate anything you can. even the smallest amount can do some good. £1 will get his beautiful little boy a sweetie on the holiday.
£10 will buy a cinema ticket. £100 will pay for car hire for a week.
More and more of us are touched and affected by Cancer each year. If you have been affected you know the heartache and grief it causes, if not then I pray you never have to go through it.
God bless and many thanks in advance for anything you can spare.
