In November 2017, at the age of 34, during a routine check they found a tumour and I became a cancer patient. My incredible surgeon performed a bowel resection straight away but a subsequent PET scan revealed the disease had spread to my liver. Another major operation, eleven cycles of chemo and many hard days later I was back on my feet with clear scans and a future I thought I mightn't have. It is because of the skill of two amazing surgeons, an unbelievable oncologist, my amazing team of nurses, a relentlessly inquisitive wife and the work of CANCER RESEARCH that I am still alive today. The progress CANCER RESEARCH has made over the last three decades means that I was given a chance at survival, this was a chance my grandmother didn't have when she fell ill with the disease in the mid-1980's. Having been through the horrors of cancer, I want to do everything I can to help the research effort. To prove that I'm back to my old self - I'll be swimming a mile each day during the month of May to raise funds for the incredible CANCER RESEARCH! Each day someone who helped me through will join me on the swim - 31 miles coming up!
