My 2018 began with four weeks of radiotherapy treatment for Prostate Cancer.  Six days after finishing the treatment I celebrated my 75th birthday. I’m lucky because my cancer was caught early and I am now clear of the disease.

Every day 112 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer.

About 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives and around 11,000 men die of prostate cancer every year.

On 15 September I, along with several friends, will cycle 75 miles in support of Tackle’s “Cycle to the Moon” campaign.  Thank you for sponsoring me..

Cycle to the Moon and Save a Dad

Cycle to the Moon is a major fundraising initiative by Tackle Prostate Cancer that will encourage people of all ages to get on their bikes and raise money for the fight against prostate cancer.

Taking place during 2018, the event is open to all ages. We hope that everybody can show their support through cycling miles either on the roads, in the gym, at home or on outdoor trails. It’s a fun, healthy activity raising funds on behalf of Tackle Prostate Cancer as well as encouraging the next generation to participate. The campaign’s target is £250,000 – £1 for every mile between Earth and the Moon.

So, come on, let’s Cycle to the Moon and Save a Dad!
