I'm taking part in my 1st Big Step Forward!

In Loving Memory of my Dad

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most painful cancers you can get and by the time you are diagnosed it is usually too late. Sadly, most people pass away within 3 months of being diagnosed.  I am raising awareness and raising money to support Pancreatic Cancer UK and I am doing this for anybody who has ever lost a loved one or is a survivor and also in Loving Memory of my wonderful dad Ronald Smith who fought for 9 months to stay with his loving family but sadly lost his battle 19th September 2020. You are missed so much dad. My aim is to walk 50 miles between now and July and 10 miles on the 17th July with children taking part. Dad, I hope I make you proud. 💜

I’m fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one. Tough to diagnose, tough to treat, and tough to survive. Together, we can change that.

I am taking part in The Big Step Forward to take steps to transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer. Please support me and my fundraising.

Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds I raise will have the power to make that possible. Every step will support world-class researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments. By walking together, we can create change to save lives.
