Story

Hi Guys,

I have wristbands for those who have so kindly supported me - Get in touch and I will get one to you! Together we have done something great here. The funds will make a world of difference for a small charity with a big cause. I will keep this page open till the end of June.

...................................................................................................................................

Recently my mum got diagnosed with rare & high grade form of endometrial cancer.

After looking into the best options for treatment, it stuck me that there is very little research & awareness on this particular illness. We want to help make the best decision for mum & there is only the one recent study to guide us.

As the 4th most frequent cancer in women, this is the 'most common diagnosis you've never heard of' (Guardian article). I looked into it further & believe it or not, there is just one womb cancer charity to support people like mum which was set up in 2016. https://goo.gl/AA9Aps

I want to support my mum in the best way I can through doing my first triathlon. I am aiming to raise £1 for every 50m metres covered on the day. Please share ect but dont tell her - I want to surprise her on race day.

The count down is on and it is exactly a month away (17th June). I'll take on a 1.5Km swim in the Thames, a 40Km cycle & a 10Km run to top it all off. The picture you see above is of me, sporting my fancy new wetsuit to help through the swim. I'll need it.

I hope you will support me on my challenge to raise much needed funding for this life threatening disease. I will be raising money for Action on Womb Cancer & will be delighted with any contribution you can make.

Thanks for reading,

James

    I am immensely proud of James for doing this for me. I can’t believe he kept it a secret from me for so long (usually I manage to winkle things out quite easily!). I feel humbled and overwhelmed by your huge support and generosity. You’ve raised money for a very small charity and the funds will make a world of difference. I’ll be in touch with Debra (founder of the charity Action on Womb Cancer) to have input on where the money goes. Thank you so very much.

    Just got my race number for the Berlin sprint tomorrow! It’s half the distance of the big one in Windsor. I’m nervous - bet the Germans are efficient on the changeover 🧐. 2 weeks to go before the big day of the secret fundraiser. Thanks for all your support so far!! X x x
