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

In memory of

Nan & Grandad

I am running the Birmingham Half Marathon on October 14th for Cancer Research UK, which marks the start of my training for Ironman 70.3 Mallorca on May 11th 2019.

Cancer is a horrible thing. I have lost both my nan and my grandad to it and presently someone close to me is suffering with a brain tumour.

The effects of cancer are tremendous. Not only is it awful for those who directly suffer from the cancer itself but it also has a detrimental and emotionally draining effect on the lives of those who love and care for the afflicted.

1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime, which is why I’m raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Please donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. However small the contribution, every little helps. Hopefully one day nobody will have to go through that which I have witnessed loved ones go through; both past and present, because of cancer.
