My personal message:

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

I know your all bored of seeing these things time after time and you all probably fall into the same category as me in thinking " oh yeah, its there but it probably won't happen to me " well let me hit you with some rather disturbing facts!!....

More than 1 in 3 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime.

There are more than a quarter of a million new cases of cancer diagnosed each year in the UK, meaning that every two minutes someone else is diagnosed with cancer in the UK.

now i figured that if everyone who knows me donated £1 thats it just £1 which is more or less the price of a bag of chips  then i would easily hit my target and probably surpass it. day in the not to distant future 1 person in 3 amongst my friends IS going to have do deal with this potentially life changing disease at some stage through thier life, and lets be totally honest would you really miss £1 that much? i think not, and would this £1 really make that much difference? the answer to that is Of Course it would.

Average cost of Bone marrow transplantation--$193,000 per patient, average cost of standard chemotherapy--$136,000 per patient, Knowing your £1 made a difference--Priceless!

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It?s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Cancer Research UK gets your money faster and, if you?re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please think about your own future and sponsor me.
