On Any Given Sunday

Cancer is a big word and it has a different meaning to every person. To me it means fear.

My grandfather- my mum's dad, died in 1992. He had lung cancer. He was 46 years of age. Both of his parents were lost to cancers. My grandmother survived cancer 5 years ago. It's not unreasonable for me to fear losing my parents, particularly to this disease.

It is for this reason that the charities I choose to support are cancer charities. It's currently Race For Life season. I wanted to run this year, but the side effects of my current drug regimen meaning running 1, 5 or 50 KM is off the cards. Lots of people I know are running this year, but in the absence of a limitless bank balance, I simply can't sponsor everybody.

So this Sunday. This is what I'm doing. My contribution to kicking Cancer's backside. Just like I'll be doing next Sunday, and every week until the promotion ends....

On every promotional bottle of Aquapura water there is a code, which when activated at means that Aquapura will donate 10 pence to Cancer Research. It may not be much, but this is every label collected for a week. And I will continue to do this for as long as it runs. 

So Cancer, bring it. Because I'm ready to fight as hard as I can to send you back to where you belong.
