Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
I felt the need to organise a tough challenge for a very
worthy cause. Over the last few years my family and friends have taken on some serious battles with their health. It was hard to understand what difficult times they were experiencing.
Nichola & Steven had been given a diagnosis of cancer that was hard to deal with but thankfully they came through. The next was my sister Janet who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016 and after intensive treatment also got the all clear.
The final blow came last year when my wife Joanne was suddenly out of the blue diagnosed with Lymphoma and unfortunately had to stay in Hospital for four months having intense treatment. This was really hard to deal with for our family. We have two teenage daughters and our world was turned upside down. We all rallied together and managed to get through those really tough months.
Joanne finally got the all clear and is now recovering well thanks to the
excellent care she received at Blackpool Vic haematology ward and the after care she is currently receiving at Vine house cancer care.
Joanne heard about Vine house through a friend and we were thrilled to find this fabulous service very local to where we live. Joanne is having
complimentary sessions for foot and leg massages to help with the neuropathy and muscle wastage. There are so many services you can access through Vine house like relaxation therapy, counselling, craft skills, family support and much more. We are so grateful to be able to receive these valuable services to help us along our way to normal living and we want to support Vine house with funding as this is an area they rely on to provide such services.
Myself and 7 friends are training in preparation to cycle the coast to coast on June the 2nd. We are hoping to achieve this in less than 24 hrs! As you can imagine this is a tough challenge but we wouldn't have it any other way considering what our friends and families have endured on their cancer journeys.
We will be starting at flamborough head and completing our ride at Glasson dock. Going from East to west.
Please help support us for this very worthy Challenge, and help us raise as much money as we can for this fabulous cause and service that help people and their families deal with such difficult situations.
All the lads taking part have been affected in some way regarding cancer.
Thank you in advance for your donations. Please come and support us at the finishing line on the 2nd of June.
Taking part will be myself, Rob Hamilton,Rob Talbot, Peter and Paul Mallett, Steven Spall, steve Sanderson.
