My Story

So In March this year My friend Gary and his wife Elissa had some of the most devastating news a parent could ever have. Their son Harry was diagnosed with Cancer on his 5th Birthday.Harry battled for nearly 5 months until tragically his fight ended by infection caused by the chemotherapy and he passed away on August 2nd.
Now I’m not a very emotional man but I’m not ashamed to say I’m writing this now with a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. As a parent I can’t even begin to imagine how Gary, Elissa and their children are all coping.
Feeling helpless and even avoiding calling Gary as I didn’t know what to say, Ive decided to do something for their charity of choice.
Candlelighters is a charity based in Leeds that have given Gary and his family a great amount of support while Harry was alive and continue to do so after Harry's death.
Please have a look at their website
www.candlelighters.org.uk
So then what to so, I thought about shaving my hair but as I have very little left what’s the next best thing? Yes you guessed it, The Three Peaks Challenge! Walking up and down the 3 highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales all in 24 hours!
This I will complete next year on May 4th (Star Wars Day)
Please even if it’s only £1 please donate. Anything you can donate will help so many family’s in situations we only can imagine in our worse nightmares.
Please Share this too to reach as many people as possible.

Thank You
