We're raising as much as we can to beat the s**t out of cancer & make treatments better, faster and less brutal #10Keith

Story

Cancer is happening to us, right now. But by the 23rd June - Race for Life, Edinburgh - Keith will have finally finished treatment for his Head & Neck cancer and will be on the mend again. His cancer was aggressive and treatment has been gruelling, yet it's pretty advanced. 15 years ago they couldn't have told us exactly what his cancer was or how to treat it perfectly, which is why Cancer Research UK is truly life saving. Dr Dev, his consultant, Fiona, his lead nurse, and the rest of the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G team at the Western General are doing everything they can to cure and care for Keith. But with more research treatments will get better, take less time, have softer side effects. Right now treatment will still almost kill you before it cures you. Keith's had infections, periods of no immune system, had a stomach feeding tube placed, had that come loose and end up in his chest cavity, sickness, fatigue, horrendous pain. The side effects are exceptionally tough and some are life-lasting - these are everything from tooth care to fertility, sunscreen to scarring. We need better treatment, faster treatment, cures of all types of cancer! BUT HE IS CURABLE. And if he can blitz chemo, radio, side effects, a barrage of drugs and surgical issues then we can run 10k (*surely...?!*). We're taking part in Race for Life 10k to raise money. To save Keith's life, the lives of the friends and neighbours he's met on ward, and anyone else impacted by this dreadful disease. 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. Lots of love! xxxx -- And if you want to join my team, SIGN UP NOW! x
