About

I am now 63 and I've always tried to keep myself fit and healthy, so it was a bit of a surprise when I got an abnormal PSA result when I went to the Lions PSA screening event in 2013. Even to this day I have had no symptoms, however follow up tests showed that I had early stage prostate cancer. I decided to have surgery and this took place in 2015, all was successful and, so far, I am now completely clear of the disease.

Event details

Reading Half Marathon

I decided to run the Reading Half Marathon because I wanted to demonstrate to myself, and others, that life doesn't end when something like this happens to you. I look on this episode as just something else that happens to you in life - you deal with it and carry on leading the fullest life you can.Thanks to the Reading Lions and the Robert Fulford Foundation, and the surgeons of course,I am fit and well today. By raising funds for them to continue with this work I hope that many other men can say the same.
