Good Friday, Walk All Over Cancer Challenge.

We March On, Walk All Over Cancer.

We March On, my 31 days are up. I did 316,991 recorded steps (any many more unrecorded), an average of 10,224 steps per day and walked over 120 miles in March, but the battle continues.

We March On

Cancer has cast a huge shadow over my life since 2002 when Ce, my wife, was fist diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She was one of the lucky ones and we count our blessings every day. I remember that after she had surgery she was in a recovery ward with several other ladies – not all of them were as lucky as we were. Ce’s Cancer has returned as Secondary Bone Cancer.

The care and treatments she receives are fantastic and we count our blessings ever day. Research and development of new and improved treatments give us hope for a better future for our family and friends.

I had a brush with skin cancer a couple of years ago and received fantastic treatment and support too. The moment when a consultant sits you down and tells you that THIS IS SERIOUS changes everything and every day people are hearing it.

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further.

We have to fight, we have to win for future generations. Thanks for reading this, together we will beat Cancer, never give up the fight.

My original motivation was that I needed to get walking again and Cancer needs to be beaten – so by making the commitment to walk 10,000 steps every day I was hoping to get mobile and contribute some of my own cash to the fight. 31 days later what do I know?

Well as an Englishman my first observation has to be that the weather this March has to have been the most challenging in years! Parts of the Country have been brought to a standstill twice by snow, even down here on the South Coast things have been disrupted.
