Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Steve Gunby, I’m 58 and live in Tyne & Wear with my wife and family. After hurting my back whilst lifting, an X-ray found I had fractured my spine. Further tests revealed I have Myeloma, a very individual type of cancer which thins your bones and explains why my back fractured. 

I have been truly humbled by the support I’ve received, especially from the Phoenix Unit at SRH, Macmillan Cancer Care, friends and family but also my work colleagues at John G Hogg funeral directors. They wanted to do something in support, came up with the team name “Gunby’s Gunners,” and decided to do the Boxing Day dip, to help raise money for Sunderland Cancer Patient Support; who not only assist you through your treatment practically and emotionally, but your family too.

It’s often easy to lose sight of the impact a cancer diagnosis can have on your immediate family. Without the combined help of everyone concerned, this journey would be a very different experience. 

Any donations would be most gratefully received in support of City Hospitals Sunderland. 

Kindest regards, Steve.
