My Story

C A N C E R Why me? I’m certain anyone affected by Cancer will ask the same question. It’s a devastating, evil and indiscriminating disease. My Dad, Geoff Molineux sadly passed away on 13th August 2016. Diagnosed with lung cancer the previous year, just so unbelievable as he was a fit and healthy 77 year old who rarely drank and hadn’t smoked in decades. He battled incredibly hard to beat Cancer, the aggressive chemotherapy and the horrific operation to remove the tumour and countless painful procedures afterwards. My Dad was so desperate to stay alive and had so many plans for the future. Always brave and a smile on his face, he fought to the end. Cruelly, less than two years later my amazing Mom, Maureen Molineux, has been diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. She’s just completed five weeks of radi-otherapy five days a week and chemotherapy one day a week which has made her quite poorly. My Mom has had other procedures and she rarely com-plains. She is so incredibly brave. My aunty Rosie Lowe and special friend Jo Meakin have also had breast cancer and have beaten it!! Colin Lovatt who is Lesley Sherwin’s Dad is also a cancer survivor. Diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago, he’s had radiotherapy and surgery. Thankfully his monitoring every six months all provide good news. And to Dom Marshall, an old friend of Steve & Lesley Sherwin, who’s an abso-lute inspiration. Not only has he created the artwork for our challenge but he’s a cancer survivor. Dom was diagnosed with throat cancer in January 2014 aged 49. He endured ruthless chemotherapy and radiotherapy for six weeks and was left unable to eat or swallow, fed only by a tube in his stomach. Dom was in a very dark place and had to learn how to eat and drink again. Cancer Research, medical technology and Dom’s sheer determination to be with his wife and children for years to come have seen him through this tough time This is why the four of us decided to do a challenge to raise money in aid of Cancer Research UK. I’ve picked a date, Sunday 12th August 2018, which is two years since my Dad died. The challenge is called Tri for Cancer and is 111 miles Tri for Cancer Here goes…….. Swim - 1 mile at Newport Leisure Centre (couldn’t find open water that would accommodate our early start time!) Cycle - 100 miles which will take us from Newport, Shropshire to Wrexham, Cheshire, Staffordshire and back to Newport, Shropshire. Then a quick change, lose the padded pants! and a short car journey to Derrington near Stafford for Run - 10 miles back to Newport on the Greenway (old railway line) for a well deserved pint or two, three at the New Inn’s pub! Total 111 miles! Originally the plan was to do the challenge without the swimming element as I can only doggy paddle 5 metres but Kev and Lez insisted (I think that was the word they used) that the swim needed to be included. So Kev and Lez will swim 1 mile, all of us will cycle 100 miles and myself and Steve will run 10 miles. Between us that’s a pretty hard challenge to be completed in a day. We would really love to raise £2,000. Please, please sponsor us and help Cancer Re-search UK. Every pound counts and the charity needs all our support.
