    Default Shameless promotion - Epic charity walk

    Chaps - I make no apologies for using this soapbox for a worthy cause. This young man is the son of one of my previous boss's.

    He was born with cancer and had an eye removed at 2 weeks old and had plenty of treatment. At 18 his cancer returned and now at 23 he is terminally ill. He has remained massively positive and has set himself the goal of completing the Coast to Coast walk in support of the Christie Hospital in Manchester. He started the walk this week, nicely in time with the recent wintry weather, but then he can't be too choosy about his remaining time available.

    There is more in the following links - I defy you to be unmoved.

    BBC News - On day 5, Thursday, in the snow at Patterdale

    No I had not read about this young man.

    On reading the coverage in the links, he is certainly a inspiration to us all, kinda makes you realise the raw deals that some unfortunate people unjustly receive from life. Certainly make's one feel very humble.

    So come on guys... a few more donations to this couragious young mans causes, I'm sure would be appreciated.
