Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.


As most of you know Cancer has always been rearing it’s ugly head in my circle of family and friends.
Most recently has been Prostate Cancer effecting my Father in law Tim and my Stepfather Nigel. Both are undergoing treatment to help keep the cancer at bay.
Tim’s Cancer is currently controlled and Nigel’s treatment has a way to go yet with nothing but questions and uncertainties. (13/6/18- recent scans has shown Nigel’s cancer has spread to his hip, pelvis and lymph nodes. He has to undergo more radiotherapy and start a new chemo drug)

Other members of my family who are also dealing with this terrible disease is my step mother who is currently on treatment for breast cancer and has had surgery to remove the tumour but now has the horrid side effects of the medication.
The other is my 2 step Sisters, one who has had a cancerous thyroid tumour removed and the other had cervical cancer.



I lost my Aunt Jane to brain cancer at the age of 45 years old and it tore a huge hole in our families hearts. My Grandmother never got over the loss of her youngest daughter and seemed to give up on life from the moment Jane passed away up until she herself passed away. My mother lost her younger sister, her only sibling. And Jane's teenage son Sam lost him Mum. How can life be so cruel??




Cancer research is always in need of donations to help them to continue to find a cure for this dreadful killer.

Carol and I decided to go out of our usual comfort zone of 10k (6 mile) muddy obstacle runs, and take on a 10 mile road run in Portsmouth.

If you can donate to our cause we will be eternally grateful. Any amount is welcome.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
