Continue Pedro's fight against cancer !!

In memory of

Pedro Ballester

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This February I’m ditching the sweet stuff and giving up sugar for a whole month to raise money for Cancer Research UK and helping to beat cancer sooner. Help me conquer my cravings by sponsoring me.

I am taking on this challenge with a number of cancer sufferers in mind, however there is one inspirational person who I would like to offer this all up to - Pedro Ballester!

Pedro was an incredibly strong 21 year old who showed everyone how to fight back at life no matter what it throws at you!
He was diagnosed with cancer in the pelvis and died within 3 years, however they proved to be the most important 3 years of his life.

He taught everyone to smile, even in his most painful moments, his great spirit was infectious and life changing for some.

I only met him briefly a couple of times, but those brief moments have always made me smile. He made an impression in a way I've never experienced before.

Help me to continue Pedro's fight against cancer!! (I'm sure he will reward you 😉)
