Women V Cancer Ride the Night London 2022

Hi there!

I am taking part in Women V Cancer Ride the Night London 2021 and cycling (100km) in one night to raise vital funds and awareness for three very important charities, Breast Cancer Now, Ovarian  Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. Though I am riding for these 3 charities, my inspiration was my son in law, who died and left 2 little boys and my daughter devastated and so lost.

Karl had never had an illness in his life.  He worked hard to give Clara and his boys everything he hadn't had as a child.  We laughed at him when he went off sick for having to wear an eye patch, he looked just like Long John Silver but without the parrot.  One year later he was gone, leaving behind a heart broken Clara and two little boys, who couldn't understand where their daddy had gone and 11 years later, still struggle to understand where their silly, funny dad has gone.

Karl  developed Non Hodkins lymphoma 'Burkitts', an extremely aggressive lymphatic cancer.  He fought for almost a year, undergoing multiple sessions of chemo, blood transfusions and a bone marrow transfusion. He spent most of this year in hospital in Liverpool and Chester.  He was the life and soul of the ward, always joking with whoever was around.  He never let this terrible illness get him depressed, even when he knew it was winning and his time was limited.

Karl  had one wish the year he died.  One last Christmas with Clara and his boys.  He never got that wish!

So, as part of this challenge, I’m aiming to raise £200 or more so that these three charities can continue their vital work, raising awareness, funding research and providing support for people affected by breast, ovarian and cervical cancers.

Can you please support me by making a donation? Any amount you can spare will be a huge help and will go a long way towards the work of the charities.
