The link above gives the full story. I grew up with Jess, whose father recently passed away from Pancreatic Cancer around the same time she gave birth to her first son. Jess is the person she is, at least in part, because of her dad. Despite not knowing him, he is important to me for that fact alone.
I don't run, and I weigh 92kg, so this is going to hurt. Please donate and help a friend show a friend how thankful he is to know them. Leave your own messages of support, too, for the Tufnell family.
Despite being the 10th most common cancer in the UK, survival rate remains so low because of late detection. That's why I'll be raising money for Pancreatic Cancer Action, a charity with a central focus on improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
