We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help beat cancer sooner

Story

As some of you will know, my brother-in-law Pete Massey died of Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) skin cancer in August 2015. He endured years of terrible pain with great strength and stoicism. He was a hero and I was in awe of him. Then, in December 2015, my good friend and Goldsmiths colleague Bart Moore-Gilbert died suddenly after a short battle with kidney cancer. He stayed alive just long enough to see the birth of his son, Luke, and died a few days later. Their battles with cancer left me with feelings of great helplessness. As those who know me will know, I love walking and that's something I *can* do to help, so I'm walking the West Highland Way over 8 days in August this year to raise money for Cancer Research. I'm walking the line for Pete and Bart. Please donate if you can/want to. Thanks.
