NV Salon are proud supports of the charity event Canoeing for a cure. Together the team and I aim to raise enough money to fund a day's research in to brain tumours, the current cost of which is £ 2,740.
Please see how brain tumours have affected our dear friend Wayne.
Please let me start by introducing myself. My name is Wayne Byles and I am a sergeant in the British Army, serving as part of 32 Regiment Royal Artillery (The Wessex Gunners).
Over the Christmas period a dear friend of mine, Jim Murray, began to feel unwell. Following two trips to A&E he received the devastating news that he had a brain tumour.
Following further tests Jim received the heart-breaking news that his tumour was terminal.
Although my relationship with Jim isn’t biological he has always been somewhat of a father figure to me. I first met Jim and his family at the age of (16 yrs.) I had chosen to leave my parents’ home due to domestic violence and a breakdown of our relationship. I had given up on college and was living in a garden shed a few doors down from Jim’s family home.
After multiple conversations with Jim I started to really admire and respect him as a person. Our relationship started to grow as he would always take the time to talk to me whenever he could see I was troubled. Jim would never judge me because of my family name or social class.
Jim would always say, if you work hard enough you can achieve almost anything. Because of our growing relationship, Jim and his family would except me as one of their own, housing me in the family home for the next few years. Whilst living with Jim and his family I would try many jobs, but still couldn’t settle.
Jim then pointed me in the direction of the armed forces, as a veteran himself he was able to tell me all about life in the forces and prepare me both mentally and physically for the challenges ahead.
I finally enlisted into the British Army and have served with them for the past 14yrs. During my career I have travelled the world, married and started my own family. Jim has been there to support me every step of the way.
My family and I are extremely blessed to have crossed paths with such a special human being.
