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.
