Team Rossi Foundation
After trying to get to the bottom of various health issues and constant high temperatures, Rossi was sent for a biopsy for suspected lymph node infection. He Was diagnosed with the rarest form of Leukaemia. ALL (acute lymphoblastic Leukaemia ).
Rossi is currently on maintanance phase and his end date for treatment is 21st May 2017. He is fortunate that he has an excellent support network of family and friends, but not all families have that available to them.
Our aim is to be able to treat local children to days out and treats that can't be afforded by parents of children with cancer because they're too busy looking after their child to be able to work. This impacts everything in day to day life from ability to pay bills and run a household etc. Fortunately there is an amazing charity called Clic Sargent that offers help to families in our situation.
What we hope to do is to be able to offer an escape to these families and raise enough money to provide days out to places such as Alton towers,Lego Land, Wheelgate, simple trips to the cinema etc.
Helping children with cancer to live a fun life thoughout their treatment by providing treats, day trips and the small things that hopefully make them smile.
I am doing the london to paris bike ride on the 29th may which is over 3 days and about 285 miles. I tried to do this before but i struggled to raise the money, so this time i am not doing it with a company where they take half the money. so this time me and a friend (Duncan Toppliss) are doing this off our own backs and paying for this our selfs with the help of simon hopkins electrical which are based in grantham. This means all money that is donated by you will go to team rossi so please help.
It's good to know there are charity's out there to help support familys and children in need of help and support.
Been on the turbo trainer today and dam all of a sudden that has become increasingly harder to do, i would rather be on the road.

Thank you to everyone so far who has given money to sponsor me
