To honour those of us who had to fight or lost their fight & find a cure to end cancer.

My Story

As most of you will know - and some of you might not know - I spent 4 years battling cancer. I won't lie to you, it was hell, absolute hell. I got to know some great people. Some of whom, despite putting up an amazing fight, sadly passed away. Some of those people were like me, only teenagers. I went through countless rounds of Chemo, radiotherapy, a stem cell transplant and my final chance and thankfully my saving grace and a nightmare, a bone marrow transplant with my brave brother Kyle as my donor. I'm grateful to all of my siblings for stepping up to be tested to see if they could donate and who've signed up to be donors for anyone who needs help. Cancer isn't just a nightmare for those who have been diagnosed, it's a nightmare for their family and friends too. As a result of all I went through I have been left with too many health issues to count to this day. And was even unlucky enough to have a very rare side effect of the bone marrow transplant, Guillian-Barre syndrome which left me completely paralysed and on life support. Let me tell ya, learning to breathe, walk, and do simple things like writing and even making toast! It's no cake walk! The scary thing for me is, that I'm only 14 years away from the rough estimated age that the Hodgkins could return. This is my messed up story. This is why, even though I'm on a crutch and could quite possibly take about 2 hours to walk what should take less than 1 hour lol, I am going to do this walk. To raise money to find a cure as quickly as possible so that no one has to endure even the tiniest amount of this nightmare. No one should have to fight this fight, or worse, lose their life. And no one should have to lose a loved one to cancer either. So please, please sponsor me as much as you possibly can so that we can find a cure as soon as possible! Thank you ?
