Jane Tomlinson

Recommended Posts

Dont think I have read this anywhere on here, but I think it could do with a mention and a round of applause.

 

For those who dont know about Jane Tomlinson she is a terminal cancer sufferer and is from my home city of Leeds. Despite having an incurable form of Cancer she has raid over £1.2m in funds for various different cancer charities and this women is basically a miracle. She hasnt let the disease get her down and has one awesome positive get up and go.

 

ANYWAY, she has just completed a 4.3k Miles bike ride across the USA to raise yet more money.

 

After losing my mother to this awrful disease in March last year, it makes me feel proud of people like Jane as I know (Well sort of) how hard it can hit you, especially after chemo.

 

You can read more and give some money to some of Janes Charitys on her website

Absolutely...

 

Been in the same boat as you mate having lost my Mam 9 years ago to cancer so anyone who does stuff like this, especially when they too are suffering from the disease, gets my absolute full backing :good:

Actually although I admire her tenacity I would say she is scared rather than brave. She has a young family who are not getting to see her when they will probably need her most. It seems to me she is scared of spending time with them.

Her daughter has been with her on the bike ride across America. She was on the news the other day reading bits of her diary that she's been keeping whilst she's been with her mam.

In that case I withdraw my remarks. I just thought about how I would feel if I knew I was going to lose my mam and she just went all over the world doing these things. And were all her children there. She has three.

She was on Radio 5 the other day and she definitely has some of her family with her biking across America. Agree with the previous sentiments praising her.
