28716298_1522964852.9226_funddescriptionCancer is something that unfortunately affects everybody. Whether you have lived with it, survived it, or have lost somebody you love to it, it is a disease that can bring unbelievable challenges to many people. I've spent the last 6 years watching my own wonderful Dad fight this disease and could not be more grateful for all of the people who have supported him through this.

This summer, Jack (my dog) and I are taking on the challenge of walking the South West Coastal Path (629.6 miles) in one sweep, which will hopefully take us just under 60 days. Minehead (Somerset)-Poole harbour (Dorset)
I am completing this challenge in the hope of raising as much money as possible to gift to the support of patients with oesophageal cancer and to help with future cures and preventions.  This particular cancer is the fourth highest cancer killer in the UK with a 5 year survival rate of only 6%.  My dad is the most fabulous man in the world and I am very lucky that he has surpassed that statistic and is still positive, however many others aren't so fortunate.  
I will be donating any money I raise to Ochre Charity which is a UK based charity that promotes awareness of oesophageal cancer amongst the public, professionals, politicians and patients.  They encourage research into the causes of this cancer and develop information and support for patients and their families.  

If you can spare any pennies I would really appreciate it, however if you have no spare money then please feel free to support me mentally by sending me love everyday that I am walking. 

To all the people that have said you'll come and join me for a  day or two...YOU BETTER HAD!
