Welcome to my fundraising page for my personal project. My name is Joe Campbell and I am setting myself a personal target to lose my weight. I have been inspired to achieve a better life by a very special lady in my life who was quite simply an amazing person, who spent her life looking after everyone else, Karen Campbell, My stepmother and much loved wife, mother, sister, daughter, cousin, friend and colleague to the many many people that will keep her forever in our hearts.
I am raising money for the grimsby ITU unit, who unbelievably do not have government funding despite the amazing work they do for so many people.
I am looking to set myself a target weight of 185lbs by June 2012. My current weight is (to be updated very soon once weighed, possibly about 225-230), I will post regular updates of weight loss.
After contracting Cancer, Karen became very ill but being the inspirational woman she is, she thought through the cancer and got the all clear, but unfortunately despite her tremendous willpower and courage, it was just too much for Karen who was taken into the grimsby ITU unit who worked extremely hard around the clock and took her life into their hands to ensure Karen was as comfortable as possible and ensure that the family dearest to her was around her before she passed away. Despite everything that happened Karen kept a smile on her face, was always comforting other people and still putting herself before others.
