Patrick and Sue are climbing Britain’s 3 highest mountains and cycling 500 miles to fundraise and increase awareness of Cancer Research UK’s bold ambition of 3 in 4 patients surviving cancer by 2034. We want to Beat Cancer Sooner
Having both been widowed at the age of 52, due to our spouses dying from cancer, we recognise the importance of CRUK’s work and want to save other families from having to go through this devastating experience.
Since the deaths of Pam and Philip in 2007 and 2009, we became more and more involved with CRUK. In addition to fundraising, we became Cancer Campaigns Ambassadors in Sheffield and Wantage respectively, campaigning to improve early diagnosis of cancer and get legislation introduced for Standard Packs for cigarettes.We met increasingly at training and lobbying events and to cut a short story even shorter, becoming much more than volunteer colleagues, we married in December 2016.
We are both passionate about supporting CRUK and determined to play whatever role we can to Beat Cancer Sooner and reduce the number of families whose lives are devastated by cancer.
