Thanks for taking the time to visit our Skin4Life Just Giving Page.
We cannot quite believe that yet again we are dusting off our walking boots and embarking on another Skin4Life walk! Over the last 8 years, we have raised vital funds for melanoma research and treatments at The Christie Hospital in Manchester.
Our Skin4Life charity was formed after my husband Richard was successfully treated for terminal malignant melanoma in 2007 when Archie was 3 and Mabel was 10 months old. He was treated with a ground breaking trial drug which saved his life and offered hope to others.
We realised after such amazing care from the team at The Christie just how important fund raising is for continued research, better treatments and a brighter future for melanoma patients.
We have raised over £45,000 so far.
Richard's brother Simon and his wife Elaine started the annual Skin4Life walk as a Thank you to The Christie 7 years ago and this blister giving, gruelling, crippling and mainly rewarding event has gained support and strength year on year to become the wonderful event it is today!
So, here we are again.....another challenge. .and more vital funds needed for continued life saving work at the Christie. Please support us once again. From the very young to the the slightly decrepit (yes that's me!) we will all endeavour to complete this year's challenge to raise money so there are more positive stories like Richard's and more children like Archie and Mabel who have a wonderful Dad in their lives because of the amazing work The Christie do.
Thank you so much for your support. X
