NOVEMBER 2014 : Kev is told how long he could likely expect to live
PRESENT DAY : Live counter shows how far he is going past that prognosis
Kev's Story So Far
Meet Kevin Webber : A VERY Unordinary Man
Make the Most of Every Day
WHEN LIFE DEALS YOU WHAT SEEMS LIKE A TERRIBLE CARD IT CAN SEEM VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A POSITIVE RESPONSE, TO PICK YOURSELF UP, TO APPLY YOURSELF, TO FIND THE WAY, TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN CURL UP AND ACCEPT THE INEVITABLE...
BUT HAVE A LOOK AT THE ABOVE CLOCK COUNTING, AND THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN...

WE MAY HAVE TO CONCEDE A GRIM PROGNOSIS... BUT WE CAN REFUSE TO ACCEPT A PESSIMISTIC FUTURE
An ordinary man like you or anybody else can change the way they react to the worst news or events imaginable. On this site you'll find the story of Kevin Webber, who in reaction to a diagnosis of terminal, inoperable prostate cancer, took a very different stance to the one that WE ALL would find the easiest
Because three years ago, after he was told he could expect just another two years to live he made a choice to not just curl up in his chair and accept the inevitable.

KEV FACED GRUELLING CHEMOTHERAPY, VARIOUS CHALLENGING TREATMENTS AND A BLEAK OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE
After his very first chemo session, which according to everybody who has had to endure them make you feel totally terrible, he decided to go for a run in an act of pure defiance.
That single act of defiance led to a way of thinking that has had him tackling some of the most gruelling endurance races in the world. Explore this site to see what he has taken on so far, what he is planning next and join us as we applaud every single step he takes.

BE THE BEST & STRONGEST VERSION OF YOU, THAT YOU CAN SUMMON
Consider how just one man's response to a terminal diagnosis can inspire you & others in your life to make the most of what you have in front of you, no matter what it is, no matter how insurmountable it may at first appear. And your first act of defiance can be anything at allsimple : just look at that counter and consider how the seemingly impossible can, actually, become possible.

"Every day I now see as a gift and if you have a gift it would be rude to not use it, to leave it unwrapped, in a dark corner of a cupboard."
This site & all of Kevin's missions, including a self-funded documentary about Making The Most of IT, are run by a VERY small bunch of volunteers, so if you think you can and would like to help us then of course we would LOVE to hear from you!!
Kev says "I have already had a year longer in my life than I expected, thanks to new advancements in medicine; pleas ehelp fund some more. I pay all my costs to these events so all donations go entirely to Prostate Cancer UK."
Kev is passionate about raising the profile of his missions alongside the important role of raising awareness and funds to help erdicate prostate cancer for men in the future. He tries to comply with all media requests if possible.
