Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am a Consultant Breast Surgeon and member of the NHS Breast Team caring for patients in Northern Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.

I am participating in the 2024 Hotchillee London-Paris Cycle, a self-funded 323 mile three-day cycling event from London to Paris on June 13th - 15th, 2024.

I have taken up this challenge for two important reasons. Firstly, I want to raise awareness of the benefits of exercise in fighting cancer. Research shows that people who exercise are less likely to get cancer and are more likely to stay healthy during and after treatment. Exercise also has a positive impact on the mental health of both patients and their loved ones on a cancer journey. It doesn't have to be cycling; any form of exercise, like walking with a loved one undergoing treatment or trying chair-based exercises, can make a difference.

By supporting me in this cycling event, you will be helping me raise funds for the Pink Rose Charity which is part of The Health Tree Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving breast care services in our community. The funds raised will go towards providing essential resources and support for breast cancer patients and their families.

All donations go to charity as the event is 100% self-funded.

I am aiming to raise £500 for this cause, and your contribution would mean the world to me. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

Please consider making a donation today and help us create a healthier future for everyone.
