My Story

In February this year, we as a family were dealt the devastating blow that my amazing dad has an aggressive form of Liver Cancer and has been given just a year left. As much as this is absolutely horrendous for us as a family, I want to do something that will hopefully raise vital funds for all families and individuals that have had their life turned upside down by this terrible disease. With my challenge buddy Karly, I’ll be walking 26.2 miles (the .2 being very important!) through the streets of London over night to raise as much money as possible to help fight this horrible disease. If you can spare anything that would be amazing and, if not, please share this in the hope that it raises as much as possible. Thank you! Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there. Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
