My Dad, Guy Woodford MBE, is a superb man. Husband, Father, Uncle, Son and above all friend - Dad plays many roles in our lives. Diagnosed with prostate cancer over 20 years ago he's been a stalwart fundraiser for Prostate Cancer ever since. Fortunate to have found the highly regarded Professor Roger Kirby for his treatment, and Professor Heather Payne. Dad's health continues to be managed by hormonal treatment.
But Prostate Cancer continues to be there at the back of his mind and in those nearest and dearest to him. You'll most likely know there have been great break throughs in the research of Prostate Cancer and awareness is building, however there is still a taboo lingering over it. Dad has been a real champion in building confidence in those around him, discussing it openly and encouraging the younger men of today to get their PSA counts checked. The earlier Prostate Cancer is detected the more success there is in treating it, so it's worth getting that check!
As soon as his health allowed him to at the time, Dad has been walking mountain ranges most years (if not walking then planning) with life long friends and fundraising on the journey. He has been a regular organiser of fund raising events, the most recent luncheon at the Oriental Club with former and current Standard Chartered menfolk and others -raising a substantial £3,500+ .
Standard Chartered plays an important part in Dad's life, with 38 years service, majority of which was overseas; Dad's friendships and network of contacts across all borders has never ceased to amaze all those around him. Dad's been a real friend to many men and their families who have not had or not wanted to discuss it openly with anyone else.
With all Dad's hard work, so far he has raised in excess of £265,700. We'd all like him to achieve his goal of £300,000 and would be grateful for all the support and contribution you can offer.
