Running Dam for Dan

Dan is a man of few words and he doesn’t want any fuss made but frankly, we’ve ignored that.

Earlier this year Dan was diagnosed with inoperable cancer in his brain. Due to the location of the tumour, there’s only so much that could be done to eradicate it. He was given months to live. Following 6 weeks of intense radiotherapy Dan is, of course, battling through - staying positive and doing everything he can to beat it.

In mind of the cancer’s inoperable nature, Dan and his friends have proceeded to research alternate ways to attempt to fight back against the tumour. Cutting all; meat, dairy and sugar from his diet, Dan has opted for 100% vegan diet, based on research showing the health benefits of eating plant based when diagnosed with cancer. Coupled with this Dan has been using cannabis oil to help with the pain side of things, especially through the radiotherapy process.

It’s not all doom and gloom though.

A group of Dan’s close friends, including Dan himself, will be heading over to Amsterdam to run the Half Marathon on October 21st 2018 and try and raise some money for the man himself. Being unable to work since discovering the tumour, we are trying to raise money for Dan to cover the cost of medication, as well as allowing him to eat a high quality, plant based diet throughout this time.

It really is a case of banding together, staying positive and supporting somebody who means an incredible amount to those around him. Anything you can chip in would be hugely appreciated!
