My Story

Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Cycle 300 page. This September, before the end of the month, I will complete 300 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. In previous years this has been relatively easy for me, but this year it comes only 9 months since I had a near-fatal, bi-lateral, saddle Pulmonary Embolism in both lungs. I have a reduced lung capacity due to scarring in my lungs, and it is by no means certain that I will be able to complete the distance. I can certainly no longer do the big weekend rides. My expected recovery time is TWO years. Every penny makes a huge difference to vital cancer research so please show your support with a donation to my page.


All Cancer Types

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
