Step Out and Make a Difference
Anthony Evans was diagnosed with throat cancer in January 2015 when he was just 49 years old. He had surgery to remove the lump, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. His wife Jackie, who also had to help their two young children, 10 and 13 years old at the time through their Dad’s experience describes the time as ‘Just horrific!’
Fortunately Anthony, now 51, is well enough to take part for the first time in the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk this year and encourages everyone to come out and join him. Jackie, Anthony, Finn and Matilda plus all the family and friends from London and Surrey, (they are hoping to bring along up to 50 walkers), who supported them when Anthony was ill are taking part in the walk as well, under the team name Club Tropicana.
The walk is an amazing reason to celebrate survivorship and spread the message about how important it is to detect mouth cancers early, spot the signs and know the symptoms. There will be a medal, T-shirt and a goodie bag full of surprises for everyone who takes part. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today at www.mouthcancerwalk.org/register for your place at the bandstand in London’s Hyde Park when the horn sounds at 12 noon to start the 12th annual walk.
