Why I want to help cure cancer

I've been personally touched by Cancer having my Father pass away whist I was 14. As most family's dealing with cancer know it's a disease that affects all members of the family.We witnessed our father, Boxer, Runner and general sports person, struck down with a histiocytoma in his leg. After an attempt to remove the Tumour failed they amputated his leg above his knee.Like the fighter he was he began his rehabilitation and started to regain his mobility with the assistance of a prosthetic. However it wasn't long before we were dealt a final blow with the discovery of secondary and territory cancers throughout his body. The last few months are difficult to remember however I can see now all the decisions and requests he made to ensure I could get the best start in life without him in it.I appreciate your support as I fundraise to enable Tour de Cure to fund vital cancer, research, support and prevention projects.
