In May 2017 my close friend Benj (Mark Bonny) was told he has stage 4 cancer of the kidney which has spread. The disease was discovered ‘out of the blue’ after an onset of symptoms occurred earlier this year.
Benj has been told that his cancer is not currently operable, nor is it the type of cancer where chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments are an option. Whilst the care and attention he has received from the NHS has been very good and he is currently on treatment to minimise the tumour, we want to give him the best possible chance of a full recovery and we desperately want him to have the treatment that specialist clinics can provide.
We have found a private clinic, “Cancer Options”, who have devised a personalised treatment plan for Benj where the goal is for the cancer to become operable. It is not yet clear whether this will be possible on the NHS and since time is of the essence, with the help of donations from you, it will give Benj the opportunity to progress with this specialist treatment.
I am organising a charity stair run to run 1,000,000 stairs in one day to raise money to help pay for his treatments. This will be on Sunday 13th August 2017 from 9.30am to 7.00pm. So far we are trying to raise £15,000. We have a full breakdown of all costs for all the treatments, medicines and operations that is needed. We have set up a go fund me page where you can donate straight to (SEE LINK BELOW) but we also want to get as many people as possible to come along on the day to help run, walk or crawl 1 million stairs in one day!
Download the SPONSOR FORM and get people sponsoring you to see how many stairs you can run on the day or please donate directly.
I organised this charity stair run 2 years running to raise money to buy some disabled children new wheelchairs and we smashed all targets so I want us to do it again but to try and help save Benj’s life. If 250 people turn up on the day we only have to run 13 sets of the 161 killer stairs each. That’s the easy part… Benji has the biggest battle but he is determined to beat this and with our help he can do it!!!
Anything you’re able to give could make the difference to his and his family’s future. We urge you to donate and share his page and get involved on the day.
He is determined to beat this and we are determined to hit this target to help him make it, please join us.
On behalf of our friend and his family, thank you. ❤️❤️ xxx
