I really want to show my appreciation for all those that have helped me this year by telling this story and by giving something back.
Although It is in my nature to do something completely mad as a physical challenge, sadly the progression of the cancer and this next round of chemo have meant that I’ve had to rethink and rein my plans in! So with the help of my friends, we’re going to do what we can and plan a Sky Dive, a tandem bike ride and a soup walk- to start with ....Maybe!!

I am raising funds for Sarcoma UK to help research into new treatments for Sarcoma and for Southampton General Hospital Chemotherapy Unit. This Unit is increasingly busy and under resources as more effective treatments are discovered to prolong the lives of cancer patients. New facilities are desperately needed.
Please give your support. Join me in my adventures by gaining sponsors, donate through this just giving page or just do your own thing to raise awareness.

Watch this space for my up and coming adventures and challenges to help raise money for Sarcoma UK and for Southampton General Hospital Chemotherapy Unit.

Thank you so much for listening.
