My Story

Wow,
Welcome to my page if you got here its probably because you know me and my story already if so read no further just get your money out and donate. If you don't know my story well its goes like this...
Once upon a time a long, long time ago when I was a young man I began my journey of raising money for Cancer Research. Together with a group of like minded individuals and a great support team we set out to run completely around the coast of Scotland "Cancer Coastal Canter" was the banner under which we ran. We achieved our goal and somewhere in a newspaper archive in Stirling is a picture of the team handing over our donation to the Cancer Research organisation. Since then I have put my body through various physical challenges to raise money with my most recent effort being in 2015 when I ran the Gold Coast Marathon raising money for Cancer Council Queensland. Unfortunately injury ruled me out in 2016 and then in late 2016 I was diagnosed with Throat Cancer and Lung Cancer, I do like to be different, so most of 2017 was spent back and forwards to hospital. Despite the fantastic efforts of the hospital team the lung cancer spread and is now inoperable that said I have been given some very expensive drugs to slow down the spread of the cancer, which will ultimately finish me off (hopefully not for a while). I have not asked how much has been spent just to enable me to sit here typing today but I can tell you the drugs alone cost $7,000 a month and I'm on my third month and hope to have many more. The price of these drugs alone give just a small indication of the cost associated with Cancer Treatment and research. Now that's were you guys come in I have set myself a target to raise $2500 dollars this may be optimistic but as you all know every little helps. So please make a donation today to help make a difference to someones life. Also if you could share my post you never know who you know who may know me. Thank you.
