Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Cycle 200 page.
One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime. I never imagined I would be part of that statistic, but unfortunately I am.
In April this year I completed six months of IV chemotherapy and had absolutely no energy to do anything at all.
I had surgery in May to remove a small tumour from my leg, after which I could just about walk to the top of the road two weeks after the operation.
I’m now feeling more energetic (most days!) and have decided it’s time to get fit and lose the extra pounds piled on due to my chemo, steroids and lockdown snacking.
I’ve therefore decided to take on this challenge. I’m not a cyclist, so will be pedalling on the exercise bike in the garage (I’d probably kill myself if I ventured out on the roads on a real bike!).
This September, before the end of the month, I will attempt to complete 200 miles on my bike for Cancer Research UK. I will be pedalling harder than ever because I want to raise money for life-saving research and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Every penny makes a huge difference to vital cancer research so please show your support with a donation to my page.
I may not be able to complete the full 200 miles within September, but I’ll keep going until I do, so any moral support you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
