We support research into all aspects of cancer through the work of more than 4,250 scientists, doctors and nurses. Over the past 10 years alone, thousands of lives have been saved through earlier detection and improved treatments. But, much work remains to be done if we are to achieve our aim of beating cancer.

My personal message:

Dear All


As some of you may know, my father hasn't been at all well recently and is currently still recovering from a major operation to remove a cancerous tumor from his stomach.  Although he faces the prospect of 5 further months of chemotherapy (having already had two lots prior to the Op.), he has been strong throughout and continues to just get on with the next step, without question.


As you can imagine, this has all been pretty tough on my family and me, and has made me feel somewhat useless as regards being able to help him. As a result, with my Dad's willpower as inspiration, my brother (Will) and I have decided to get our own back.  We are therefore undertaking a 10K sponsored run in aid of Cancer Research, in an effort to raise money to help all cancer sufferers, including my Dad.


P.S. All those who know me will understand that, I am more of what you would call a ?sprinter? than a ?distance runner?, so I promise, I will be trying my hardest!


Thanks for visiting my fundraising page and please sponsor me now!


Donations can be made through ?Justgiving?. It 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.
