My Story

Thanks for visiting my 100 push-ups a day fundraising page for Cancer Research UK. Cancer is no longer the death sentence it once was, but more research is needed to prevent more lives from being lost. 50% of people diagnosed with cancer in England and Wales survive their disease for 10+ years and cancer survival has doubled in the last 40 years in the UK. The fact remains that there are around 375,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, which is 1,000 each day. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Breast, prostate, lung and bowel cancers together account 53% of all new cancer cases in the UK. There are more than 450 every day. My Great Grandma, Great Aunt and several friends have died with cancer. I hope to fundraise in their memory. I am an avid gym-goer, but push-ups are difficult for me because I am a full-time wheelchair user and my hamstrings do not extend beyond 95 degrees. I am looking forward to the challenge. Please show your support and help fund life-saving research by making 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.
