Hi, my name is Jo. I have a dear friend who is affected by cancer and I have had personal issues myself with various traumatic times in my life. All of these reasons are contributing to me wanting to do this. Below is a message I posted on my personal Facebook page during March 2012. It may help people to understand a bit about where I'm coming from on a personal level...

My name is Johanne and I have battled with depression for 4 years after suffering abuse from my biological father. In this time I gained 9 stone through drinking and becoming a recluse and became extremely unfit. I have recovered from my depression finally after a year of counselling and have since lost 2.5 stone. I'm trying to work my way up to a charity event that I've decided to commit to in June 2013. It's cycling Kenya for cancer research. Approx 400km.

I have made a Facebook page about it and desperately need some help with getting my page known about also. It is very hard to get support when you've only got a little voice!

My Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/cyclekenyaforcancerresearchjune2013

It has some funny pictures and light hearted content as well as information from various Internet sites relating to cancer research support.

Please visit the page and press like for me. Thanks for your time and wish me luck please, I'll need it! Jo x
