My Story

Look around where you are now and half of the people that you see will have cancer at some point in their lives. Some will survive and some won't. Over the last forty years survival rates have more than doubled through the pioneering work that Cancer Research UK does each day. Today it is 50% which, as we all know, is an awful lot better than what it was in the 1970's. Sadly, both of my parents and other members of my family have lost their fight against this most cruel of illnesses. The picture that you see today shows the surviving members of that family. Yet, there are a number of people in this picture who are still battling with cancer as we speak. Which ones I hear you ask? Ask yourself the same question when you're next at a busy airport lounge, train station or even when you next look in the mirror. Frightening isn't it? That's why I will endure the pain of completing the Great North Run to raise as much money as I can for Cancer Research UK with a view to improving the outlook for everyone. I may have to walk some of it as I did last year when my injury forced me to, but it will be worth the pain if it saves just one life. So, please spare whatever you can to help eradicate this terrible illness. Thankfully only one in two of us will get cancer but all of us are able to support the research to help defeat it. Thank you for your support.


All Cancer Types

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
