I'm having a dry month for all the people in my life who have suffered with this horrible disease.

My Story

What a way to start the New Year... not drinking for a whole month... definitively not one of my better ideas for a challenge. I have this great habit of getting in from a long day at work and opening that refreshing fridge for a cheeky Beer or glass of wine, of course this can then become a 'few drinks'. Oh how I love the pub culture in the UK and I dread to think what it will be like for a whole month without it (no i can't just go and have juice!!). I've done all sorts of challenges to raise money for various things but I've never done a dry month. Sad that the thing we all have in common with each other is we all know someone who has been affected by Cancer. Most recently my partner Shelley was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, which sucks. Shelley has just started Chemotherapy after 2 operations to remove the lump and all her lymph nodes from her right side. She's an absolute trooper but Shelley proves it happens to all of us and any of us. Surely I can take on the challenge of not opening that refreshing fridge for a whole month for such a good cause :) Please dig deep and donate now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK. Lastly, and i'm yelling this to all of you... check your boobs regularly. Thanks everyone :)
