My Story

Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page. The money I raise will help fund life-saving research and to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. I will be doing the Hadrian’s Wall Walk solo starting on 6th September 2021. This is 84 miles long and I estimate will take me 5/6 days. I will be camping each night so I will be carrying everything I will need in my pack. The hike starts at Bowness on Solway and finishes at Wallsend in Newcastle. 1 in 2 people will contract cancer and many of us will therefore know someone who has been effected. My Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago so this is a personal issue for me. If you can spare a few pence or even a few pounds then I would be extremely grateful.


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.
