I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Brian 'Biff' Beavis

During June 2019 my Dad was diagnosed with esophagus cancer. News that rocked my whole family. I felt frustrated and helpless that I couldn't do anything to help make him better.

Then I came to realise that I could do something, I could help raise money to help fund research that will one day be able to cure many others in the same situation as my Dad.

So I grabbed my laptop and signed up to run my very first half marathon and started training in between spending as much time with my Dad as I could.

Sadly he lost his battle against this cruel and aggressive disease in September 2019, I will be running the Vitality Big Half in London on 1st March 2020 in his memory, knowing he'd be proud.

Please donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured and we stop losing people we love too soon.
