I'm taking on Sweatember to raise money for Cancer Research UK, please support me.

This September, I’m taking on Sweatember, an epic 30-day exercise challenge for Cancer Research UK. Help me raise money to fund life-saving cancer research by sponsoring me. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure.
It is exactly a year since my own cancer diagnosis, a year of surgery, chemotherapy,radiotherapy and injections. It hasn’t been pleasant but it hasn’t been awful either. The medical staff have been wonderful, kind and supportive. My family have been kind and caring, hiding their fears from me and encouraging me to keep going.
I have always been an active person and finding myself without the energy to exercise has been very hard. As I near the end of my treatment I hope that Sweatember will give me the motivation to regain my fitness whilst supporting this very necessary cause.
