Kevin Webber is taking the fight to prosate cancer

Instead of sitting back and waiting for the inevitable, he is battling to raise awareness and funds to help researchers find a cure; he is Making The Most of what he has...

Kev's one-man mission

Kev's History:

"In November 2014, aged 49, I was given the news that I have effectively-terminal prostate cancer and may only live as short as two years.

"After the initial shock and emotion I came to realise that what life I still have is there for living. In the time that I have I believe that I have a duty to create the best memories I can for my family and friends, whilst doing all I can to raise awareness and money for Prostate Cancer UK. This is so that my sons, brother, nephew, friends, colleagues... your sons, fathers, brothers, you and the ladies who support you in any way do not have to go through or witness a man dying of this indiscriminate disease."

Kev's 2018 Response:

"So for 2018, I have set myself a challenge of completing the Likeys Yukon 6633 Ultra, 350 miles non-stop pulling a sledge across the Arctic in temperatures below -50c and then 2 weeks later to the Sahara to compete in the Marathon Des Sables for a third time. That's another 250k carrying all your supplies for the week on your back where the temperature exceeds 50c (hence the 100 degrees of separation).

"I don't believe that this has ever been done before by someone with T4 cancer and whilst my health may mean that I don't make either start line or am unable to finish I do believe that everyone should push themselves in life and never give up unless the task becomes literally impossible. That does, of course, mean that if I can't complete you may end up 'Just Giving' but trust that you will believe me when I say that if its humanly possible for me to do it, I will."

Help Find a Cure:

I have already had a year longer in my life than I expected to have thanks to research and improvements in cancer medicine and hope that you feel able to fund and accelerate further research stopping prostate cancer being a killer forever.

1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer, it's the biggest male cancer and a man dies every 45 minutes of it. Prostate cancer wont stop being a killer unless we all help make it so.

I have paid all my costs to these events so everything that you donate will go to Prostate Cancer UK.

Thank you
Kev
