In memory of

Nick Kenyon

Last October my Mum was diagnosed with stage four NHL. Her chemotherapy regime was called R-CHOP (each letter for a different drug) It is the R which is the newest drug and which has had the biggest impact on the survival rate for NHL for some time. It is only through research that the ‘R’ came about and therefore impacted on my personal life. For not for the first time last year (a friend died in September) Cancer Research meant something to me personally. As a scientist it had always meant something but on the front line it helped put my mum’s cancer into complete remission.
I am not an exerciser ;-) but for everyday in September I am going to do some kind of exercise. I know people get tired of hearing about cancer - but the thing is is that cancer doesn’t get tired, it doesn’t care who, when or what type. My mum has never smoked, hardly drinks alcohol, eats healthily and exercised regularly - it didn’t care, she got it.
Please support me if you can by donating through this site or in person. I’ll even put photos up. Thank you 💕
