We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help beat cancer sooner


Cancer, we're coming to get you!

Thanks for visiting my Race for Life sponsorship page. I'll be running, (well walking it!) again this year in memory of Eileen.  I'll be completing the race with Eileen's lovely daughter Grace, some of her friends and family.

Eileen was a special lady who was taken from us far too quickly and too soon and we want to raise as much money as possible to try and stop others going through the same thing. Eileen passed away on the 24th of December 2011 from a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that seemed to appear from nowhere and took her just as quickly as it came.

It has left a big gaping hole in the lives of those who knew and loved her. I still think of her every day as i'm sure others do too and I really wish she could have been here to meet her nephew, who I know she'd have loved to bits.

Cancer is a terrible, heartbreaking disease that affects so many people's lives and the lives of their families, so please dig deep and sponsor me online - it's quick, easy and totally secure.

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create a force that cancer can't ignore.

Gift Aid it!

If you are a UK taxpayer, please remember to tick the Gift Aid box when donating as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no cost to you.

Sponsor me now, and we can become cancer's worst nightmare!

Many thanks for your support. Together we will beat cancer.
