I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer

(Fr en dessous)
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.

I am also doing this for Ryan, my cousin's boyfriend:

Ryan 27 and Zoe 23 are in love. Ryan is my eldest daughter Zoe's partner and they've been living as a couple for the past two years in Galway, Ireland.

You probably know already, that at the end of August scans showed that Ryan was developing a nasty glioma and he was diagnosed with advanced brain cancer.
He was then in the third month of a trial period for a new job which he was forced to quit in order to start his medical treatment in emergency. As a result he was left with no health cover.

He currently receives 150€ a week from the Irish health service. The chemo and radiotherapy costs are covered by the health service but he has to pay for his hospital fees and for all the side medical treatment he gets. He doesn't have anything to live on as he no longer has a job.Today Ryan started his third course of chemo. The second course was particularly hard going, Ryan lost 8kg in just 10 days. His only relief came from massages. On top of all that, Ryan and Zoe's landlord decided to undertake renovation work in their flat and he's asked them to move out by Christmas. They've had to look for a room in Galway in a hurry. They've just found one which is not to far away from the hospital but costs them 1,000€ a month. Pure madness.All of Ryan,s family members live in Donegal, 400 km away from Galway hospital. However, his family and friends are sticking together. His parents, grand parents, sister, bother in law and many more are standing by his side and also by Zoe's who's nursing him daily.This is a terrible ordeal for all of them. I thought that if we managed to get together and collect some money for Ryan, we could maybe give him a little relief and also support Véronique and Christopher, his parents.Thanks again for helping Private Ryan !Véronique, Zoe's mum

Le cancer est réel et frappe maintenant, c'est pourquoi je participe à cette course pour la vie Pretty Muddy pour appeler aux dons et sauver des vies.

1 personne sur 2 se fera diagnostiquer un cancer dans sa vie. Chaque livre que vous donnez compte pour travail innovant de Cancer Research UK, alors s'il vous plaît, aidez moi !

Ryan, 27 ans, est l’amoureux qui partage la vie quotidienne de Zoé , ma fille ainée de 23 ans, à Galway en Irlande depuis deux ans.Et vous savez aussi sans doute que fin aout, il lui a été découvert une tumeur au cerveau de stade avancé, un gliome bien méchant.Il était alors dans le troisième mois de période d’essai de son emploi qu’il a perdu pour démarrer d’urgence des soins médicaux. En conséquence, il s’est aussi retrouvé sans couverture de santé.Le service social de santé Irlandais lui accorde 150 euros par semaine. Les frais de chimiothérapie et de radiothérapie sont pris en charge par le système de santé mais pas les frais d’hôpitaux et autres soins périphériques.Et il ne lui reste rien pour vivre puisque plus de travail.Ryan a entamé aujourd’hui sa troisième phase de chimiothérapie. La deuxième a été très éprouvante et 10 jours ont suffit pour qu’il perde 8 kg. Seuls les massages lui faisaient du bien.Pour ajouter à la difficulté, le propriétaire a souhaité faire des travaux dans leur appartement et leur a demandé de déménager avant Noel. Ils viennent de trouver une chambre à Galway en urgence pas trop loin de l’hôpital. 1000 euros par mois. La folie!.Toute la famille de Ryan habite dans le Donegal, à 400 km de l’hôpital de Galway. Mais tous, famille et amis, sont très solidaires.Ses parents, ses grands parents, sa soeur, son beau frère et d’autres sont mobilisés pour lui et de fait pour Zoé qui est l’accompagnante du quotidien.Dans cette situation éprouvante pour tous, je me disais que si nous nous unissions financièrement, nous pourrions peut-être soulager un peu la situation, pour lui et ses parents, Véronique et Christopher.Merci à tous d’aider encore le soldat Ryan!Véronique, la maman de Zoé.
