Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I'm doing Ironman France on June 23rd and would really appreciate anything you can give in memory of our dear friend Bernie Jackson who died in March from melanoma aged 46. Without the state of the art treatment she received from the team in Leeds led by Professor Newton Bishop she would not have survived even to see me start training for this event. By supporting the Melanoma Genetics consortium (Genomel.org) you can help fund research into even better therapies that can extend survival.

Be assured that every pound given will help me when I enter the hurtbox towards the end of 140.6 miles of swim, bike and run.

Please also be sure that I will do my best to give as good as I get in the biff fest that is the Ironman mass swim start:
