Fellow Sufferer


Today was the sort of day that really makes me want to get up in a morning.

Craig came along on one of our regular school days recently and whilst listening to my tumour story happened to mention that he had a friend in a similar position that would love to learn to ride a bike. What could I possibly say other than “bring him down, it would be my pleasure to teach him”.

Chris had surgery 5 years ago, but as is often the case, they weren’t able to remove all of the tumour and now it is growing back. Chris is on his own journey trying to raise enough money to pay for a new type of treatment available in Germany. I can only wish him every success with that and in the meantime, hopefully he can find the time to do some more riding. Today was just the first step.
