I’m proud to be part of #teamstead. A very big bunch of lads supporting our good mate, Michael Stead, to raise money for a charity that has recently become even more significant and closer to home for a lot of us that it was previously. It’s Stead’s story that is the reason for my Decembeard attempt (apologies in advance) so in his own words.......

Thanks for visiting my team fundraising page. In September 2018 my life was turned upside down. Within a few weeks a suspected hernia diagnosis, turned out to be cancer. Further investigations revealed I had bowel, liver and peritoneum (the abdominal membrane) cancer, with the news it was incurable. There are no words to describe the emotional rollercoaster that my family, close friends and I have been on, but the impact has been devastating on us all. 

Now while my prognosis is what it is, anyone who knows me well will tell you I don’t believe in no win situations. So, I will be doing everything I can to fight this terrible disease with everything that I’ve got. At the same time, I intend to seize the day and make the most of the time that I do have. Part of this means me (and by default my family and friends) getting involved and raising money for a charity that obviously has huge significance for me now - Bowel Cancer UK.

Bowel Cancer UK are the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity. They are committed to saving lives and improving the quality of life for everyone affected by bowel cancer, with a clear vision of a future where nobody dies of the disease.
