At the age of 27 my Handsome, Amazing and Incredibly Talented partner Ryan McHenry lost his life.

It started when he developed a lump in his leg that we thought was just a gym injury.

                        He was the best. Seriously.

Funny, Patient,  Fiercely Stubborn and Very Loving to Everyone he knew.

I love him very much

In his short life he did many beautiful things and created a lifetime of memories with all the people who were lucky enough to have him in his life.

He loved people and the power of the internet.

 (True story he went viral with his "Ryan Gosling won't eat his cereal " videos  so he would very much approve of my shamless internet plugging)

But he hated needles. 

It was a real phobia of his however he was     THE BRAVEST MAN during his treatment. Having to go through a year of chemo and then three major operations on his lungs and leg ....believe me there were a lots and lots of needles.

 Words will NEVER explain how brave he was.

The lump in his leg was a sarcoma, a type of Bone cancer, we had never heard of it before. We didn't think lumps in legs were something that could be serious. I want other people to spread the word.

I hate running, its not a phobia but the most I do is jog to the bus when I'm running late but you know what ? I can suck it up! Just get my head down and raise some cash and awareness.



( I really don't like running so your not giving me the money for something I enjoy)

P.S. Did I mention I don't like running?

Please help me raise money for sarcoma UK, everyday 15 people in the UK are diagnosed.

Thanks Jo xxx
