I’m taking part in Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

In memory of

Abilio Amaral and Joao Carvalheiro

My Grandad, Abilio, was a kind-hearted, generous and funny man; a man that listened to your worries and gave you a shoulder to cry on; a great listener and man who's wisdom got you through your darkest days. Sadly, my Grandad passed away of Cancer. Cancer that sadly hasn't got a cure even years after his death.
My Uncle, Joao, was one of the funniest, kind-nurtured people I've ever known. He fought his battle with such strength and resilience. He held his head high and always ensured everyone wore a smile. My daughter loved him, her first ever babbling conversation was with Uncle Joao. The love they had for each other was something out of this world.

I'm doing this walk in honour of these wonderful, brave men, as well as anyone else affected by this horrible illness. Here's to kicking Cancer's butt and finding a cure to prevent it from taking any more beautiful souls.

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.
