Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am cycling from London to Paris in June 2012 for Breast Cancer Care.
Some of you may know my wife Liz was diagnosed with breast cancer following a routine mammogram in December 2010.
2011 was a tough year where Liz had to undergo chemotherapy and surgery. She is still receiving treatment but is now on the mend.
Other women are not so lucky.
I wanted to help in some small way and decided to take on the challenge and with the wind behind me and a good physio should arrive in Paris on Fathers Day! (june 17th)
