💙Firstly i have to thank everyone who has supported myself and Sarcoma UK over the last few years. Wether it was in the form of a donation to the charity or sharing my fundraising page for others to see and spreading awareness. The support has honestly been overwhelming and together we have managed to raise £5696.36!!! Smashing the original target and continuing to rise each year! So again thank you from the bottom of my heart.💙

💙A Few New Events To Update You All On For This Year💙

💰 I have extended the target to £8,000 Meaning the total we have raised will roll over from last year💰 

💙As you all know on the 22nd August 2019 we lost the bravest and most courageous bloke that I have ever had the pleasure and honour of being able to call my mate, Ryan “Eddie” Edwards. Although none of our lives will ever be the same again without that striking smile or natural charm i want to do something to help other people affected by Sarcoma cancer. Eddie had Synovial Sarcoma which accounts for less than 1% of all cancers. With this being such a rare form of cancer there is very little known about it and limited research, so every penny that is donated and raised really will go a long way in helping to fund research to find better treatments, ensure people get the care they need, and fund expert information and support for anyone who needs it.💙

💙The times we shared with Eddie and the memories that we all made with him will never be forgotten and will be cherished in our hearts forever.💙

🙏Thank you for taking your time to read this and thank you again in advance for any donations that you can afford to give! If you could please share this page so it reaches as many eyes as possible i would be forever grateful!🙏

Thank you for visiting my page. I've chosen to support Sarcoma UK, a national charity that funds vital research, offers support for anyone affected by sarcoma cancer and campaigns for better treatments. Sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops in the bone and soft tissue. It is difficult to diagnose and one of the hardest to treat. By supporting me, we can help change this. Your donation will help researchers find answers, keep the specialist Support Line open, and raise awareness to improve treatment and standards of care. Your donations go so far in helping the sarcoma community:£1 Could cover the cost of 10 texts to the support line.£10Could be used to buy microscope slides to look at cells in minute detail. £30Could fund one hour of use of a high-powered laboratory microscope. £150 Could fund the support line for a week.Thank you for your support.
