    Story

    So my best friend of over 20 years has been told at 31 years old, that she has incurable cancer!! This is the biggest shock I think I and everyone else has ever had!
    Keri is going through chemo right now to help give her that extra bit of time with her fiancé Rich and her 17 month old daughter Myla. But as with most Chemo treatments, Keri is likely to lose her hair and I could not imagine letting my best friend go through that on her own so I will be shaving my hair off in support!

    If you know me, you will probably know Andy too who has an amazing beard that has taken him 12 months to grow! Guess, what???? It is coming off too!! (Few cheers I hear from his family!).
    Please support Keri and sponsor us both to shave off our hair and Andy's beloved beard.

    Please read Keri's story below...

    My names Keri, I'm 31 with an amazing little girl called Myla who is only 16 months old.
    I have recently been in hospital for 6 weeks where I was being treated for pancreatitis and after lots of scans and tests it turns out I have been diagnosed with incurable cancer (huge massive shock), unfortunately the 15cm tumour that's on my liver cannot be removed as they have found 2 more in the area that would need to be left.
    It has also turned out that this isn't the primary location of the cancer but they cannot find that as it's so small so I have started chemo but with not knowing what we are targeting it's difficult to give me the right chemotherapy. We are hoping that something works and slows it down so I can have longer with my baby girl.
    I have created a bucket list, nothing too extravagant just things to create memories/pictures for when my daughter is older and also on that list is for me to marry her amazing daddy Rich.
    Hopefully with people's kind hearts all these will be achievable.
    The cancer I have is very very rare to the point the consultants are writing a medical journal about my journey and illness.

    D-Day is Saturday 19th Nov. More details to come
