Race for Life

This year is all about me being well enough to help others, be that through my work at FibroAction, or raising money for other charities. Cancer Research UK is very important to me, my mom, grandma and nan have all had cancer, my nan didn't make it, nor did my wife's grandfather. And I'm on a mission to do all I can to make sure that doesn't happen again.

If you need any Fibro related information, about benefits, need a chat, or anything else, remember you can always email me at: and I'll be more than happy to help.

Have a restful Sunday!

I hope to read your blog, as well!

Thanks for your willingness to share and to reach out to others!



Thanks for your support, it really means a lot xx


Good luck with getting fit for the great event hope everything goes well on the day. It is a charity I have ys supported for many years as I have unfortunately had many close members of my family and friends and my husband's family die of the disease and I am always hoping with more research they might find a cure. Well done at thinking of others even though you are ill yourself.x


Thank you for your support! Xx


Good luck and thank you for everything that you do.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi I can totally understand where you're coming from. My dad lost his battle with cancer nearly 3 years ago and as result my partner and I try to raise money for cancer whenever we can, we walk for our local hospice, marshal for our local hospice and other things besides. Just remember your people you lost wouldn't want you to put your health in jeopardy by doing things to raise money for cancer research, but good luck with it, my heart goes out to you.


Thank you, and good luck with your voluntary work for the hospice too. Do keep us updated on any events you take part in xx


I will, I like to help the local hospice as they gave me 4 precious weeks with my dad that I otherwise wouldn't have had.


Hospices are amazing places, I once worked at an NHS one years ago, such sad work but it was full of inspirational people, patients and staff alike.



Hospices allowed 4 extra weeks with my dad, without that he would have been taken much quicker!
