Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In January this year I was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma (eye cancer) a rare but deadly condition if not detected in the early stages. Fortunately my condition was detected last July through a routine eye test at Specsavers Ebbw Vale which resulted in me being diagnosed early enough for the tumour to be contained through radiotherapy treatment. This disease is deadly because people are not aware of how to detect it, the only way it can be spotted in the early stages is through eye tests. So get your eyes checked out ASAP! There are an estimated 500 cases per year in the UK. Some people survive Ocular Melanoma but lose their sight, again through late detection. It can affect anyone from 8 years old to 80 and NO my condition had nothing to do with my sporting history. Its one of the few forms of cancer where lifestyle has no impact, anyone can get it. I am still in recovery for two years but everything is moving in a positive direction. I cannot put into words how grateful I am for your interest and support and together we can save sight and lives. If one person survives through our efforts then surely its worth our time, effort and cash.
