I'm walking 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

Hi Everyone
I hope you are all keeping safe and well during these challenging Covid times.
For those of you that know me well you will be aware that over the last few years I have 2 very poignant cancer stories pertaining to 2 very special and extraordinary people – My Dad and my very dear friend Bar.
I am extremely glad to be able to describe my Dad’s story as it is one of cure, we sadly lost Bar to cancer in 2018 after a courageous battle, fought in her usual dignified and eclectic way.
Bar was diagnosed late with bowel cancer, she had treatment and care for 2 years and we were able to enjoy many special moments and experiences throughout this period.
She was afforded some time and for that myself and her precious family and friends are incredibly grateful – time given to us by the amazing work of Cancer Research UK and it’s evolving treatments for advanced cancer and also by the wonderful Macmillan services who cared for her when she entered end of life stage. I miss her every day but still find her around the place, giving me sage advice and keeping an eye on me!
My fantastic Dad, Andrew – well for those who know him you will know he is a fighter – a clever, enquiring man who fought back with gusto when he received his initial diagnosis of prostate cancer in 2017.
Dad went through a hoard of contemporary treatments c/o our magnificent NHS – and then again when he developed bladder cancer following radiotherapy. Research in both these areas has evolved so much in the last 10 years and we are sure it’s because of these advancements that we can now be grateful for his cure.
Dad is back on the golf course and centre stage of our family – we enjoyed a lovely Christmas this year, toasted our dear friend Bar, who dad adored and all the researchers and scientists who have enabled him to be back in rude and full health.
It is therefore wholly relevant we Walk all over Cancer in March – me and my Dad – in gratitude to those who saved his life and who continue to make a positive difference to those diagnosed daily with cancer – this could be any one of us at any time.
Please join us on this fight by sponsoring us – every penny counts to reducing these sobering stats below:
1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime
There are around 367,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, that's around 1,000 every day
Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer
Due to lockdown dad is not able to play golf at the moment – I have encouraged him to walk and build up his steps – he is doing BRILLIANTLY ! Between us we will be doing well over 10,000 steps a day and I will definitely be doing over 20,000 on Saturdays and Sundays.
Thank you for reading my story and keep well all of you
Much love
Caroline (and Andrew)
