Today’s the day.

Hello Everyone,

 

I am absolutely humbled by the outpouring of support, not only for the charity, but also my family.

 

Thank you to everyone who has donated, especially those who chose to remain anonymous who I have been unable to personally thank.

 

It is because of people like you Pancreatic Cancer UK will be able to continue their work in supporting those affected by pancreatic cancer, their families and bringing us closer to changing the outcome of a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

 

I will begin walking to Beckton Park around 9am, then I shall commence my official walk, updates will be posted on instagram, throughout the day. So please do follow.


❤️,

Graham

Why I am walking…

Hi Everyone,

 

Late last year a few days before Thanksgiving my cousin only 45 years old, mum to two small children, 7 & 12 received the dreadful news she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This is not news anyone wants to hear. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers there is, in part because there is no known test for early detection meaning it is often diagnosed late. Less than 25% of people survive more than 1 year.

 

My own dear uncle died of pancreatic cancer in 2004, as did my both cousin’s grandparents.

 

I decided late last year to take part in The Big Step Forward. A walk benefiting Pancreatic Cancer UK, a charity providing support to those diagnosed and their families, as well as funding research into changing the outcome of a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

 

Despite delays and challenges owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Big Step Forward goes on as a virtual 4 mile walk. 

 

On the 25th of July I will be going for a 4 mile walk around Beckton Park donning my bright purple shirt in honour of my late uncle and in support of my cousin going through the next steps of her treatment, pancreaticoduodenectomy, or removal of the pancreas.

 

Whilst I realise everyone might be a bit tight at the moment owing to the economic conditions I do ask that you please donate what you can. Perhaps the cost of your morning coffee, or peak fare into the office you are aren’t enduring doing these work from home times.  Even as little as £1 will be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thank you, forever grateful, 

Graham
