Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I’m raising money for Bowel & Cancer Research because over the last few years I've lost 3 friends, my grandfather and most recently my Dad.

Dad was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer in 2012 but with surgery, chemo and a very difficult battle he beat it and had the all clear, or so we thought. In December 2015 it came back with a level of devastation that will haunt me forever. It spread through out his body within weeks, he went back into hospital at the beginning of December with a prognosis of around 18 months but due to nature of the strain of cancer he passed away in January. We watched a man mountain fade away to a shadow of his former self.
I'm running the 2020 London Marathon to attempt to raise as much as possible for this wonderful charity and to also try to raise awareness regarding the horrific disease. Compared to the pain and suffering these people endure running 26 miles around London is but a drop in the ocean. Please find it in your hearts to donate as much as you possibly can to help fight this disease which blights so many people.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so I can reach my target and together we can help Bowel & Cancer Research do more. Thank you!
