I will be raising money for St Luke's Cancer Centre by participating in the 3 Peaks Challenge in November.

I have chosen this cause as my father and father in law were both diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2018. The news came as a total shock to the whole family and well and truly knocked my father for 6! Luckily my father in law has been able to avoid treatment so far and undergoes regular tests to check his PSA levels. Unfortunately for my father he was not so lucky as the cancer had spread out of the prostrate into his lower abdomen, this meant he had to undergo both Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy. In 2019 after he had finished all his treatment he was told that the cancer had been cleared and and he now undergoes regular PSA checks and hormone injections.

The care my father received at St Luke's in the Royal Surrey Hospital was amazing. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done and want to give something back to help them continue their good work in looking after cancer patients.
