    Story

    As use all know I lost my grandad on 4th March 2021. He was a carrier of the BRCA1 gene which led to him being diagnosed with Breast cancer 3 years ago. He had a mastectomy on his right side and fought to the very end.

    Myself, along with the majority of my immediate family also carry this gene, and several members have had their own battles with cancer.

    It is because off the quick actions of the breast screening clinic that we were able to share these extra years with my grandad so I am looking to raise funds for their department.

    I am also trying to raise awareness for men to get regular breast check-ups. Many men were suprised and shocked that my grandad passed away as a result of breast cancer, many saying 'I didn't think men could get that'. Although the percentages are lower with men it is still a possibility so please either get checked or self check.

    On the 28th May 2021 my grandad would have been turning 85 years old. As use know we always enjoyed our 'walks' which usually meant we would walk to a local bar, so on this date I will be attempting to walk 85'000 steps, roughly 30 miles.

    Please give what you can guys, no donation is to small and all donations are greatly appreciated.
