    Wishing you all the best


    Sending healing vibes!

    I think your post shows what a fantastic NHS we are lucky to have in the UK.

    Stay strong!

    So sorry to read this Chris. I wish you all the best and I hope that the treatment you’ve already had has done the job. All the best and wishing you the best recovery you can have.

    I don’t post very often mate, but all I can say is stay positive for you and your family. Looking forward to meeting you on a ride at some point in the future, where you can be one of them people I truly admire and look up to for beating this bastard.

    Echo all the above and wish you all the best in your treatment. Sunny South Wales is always here if you ever fancy a go on the bike.

    Best of luck kicking this to touch Chris.
    Thanks for writing what you have.

    I’ve been learning a lot about honesty and showing one’s vulnerability. Hat’s off to you MM for writing that. And I’ll keep tipping my hat to you all the way – I have no doubt it will be hard, but it’s a fight worth having.

    While not the same type/location, here’s a link to a blog by a similarly aged guy in my cycling club. I don’t know him, but I found reading his blog amazingly touching and uplifting. And he’s back on the bike….

    Best wishes.


    Awful news for you and your family, but glad you’re in fighting shape and up for kicking this in the arse.

    I’ve had my mum and best mate go through the same process, the only advice I could offer you is to lean on those around you as much as possible, it will make things easier for you and, strange as it sounds, it will make this easier on them too. One of the hardest things I found was not being able to help, just having to stand and watch them go through it, so the more I was able to do (even just trivial things), the more positive I felt since I was at least doing something.

    You’re in good hands now. I hope everything goes well, I really do.

    All the best buddy… stay positive and focused and no doubt you’ll be back on top in no time; there is a lot of evidence to show the healing power of the mind, so hang in there with mind over matter and you’ll kick it’s butt good n proper.

    Also, if you do decide to begin a Crystal Meth Empire due to your natural levels of genius, try to avoid becoming overly greedy.


    As everyone has said, attitude and determination play a big role in beating cancer, along with family support.

    I beat Melanoma 7 years ago, so know it can be done.

    Wishing you the best.


    I admire your courage in so many ways. Believe and keep going and believe some more and thank you for sharing. There are some wise and humbling words in the posts above, Im sure you’ll take much strength from them.

    And thank you also for giving me a renewed perspective on my life.


    I honestly dont know what to say but…

    Take it **** down. Beat the **** thing square then smile and never stop smiling 🙂


    Best wishes, a freind of mine had half of her lung removed september due to cancer, and has made a good recovery,shes back at work etc.

    Positive mental attitude and all that


    Sorry to hear that, and all the best mate.

    If you fancy another pint at the Riverhead on one of our next trips to Slaithwaite I’ll let you know when we’re next up.

    Premier Icon timraven

    I can only add to the best wishes. Hope you beat seven bags of s*** out of it.


    Wish you all the best in beating it.

    Wow Chris! You know we are here for you.

    Even though you are having problems with fatigue, myself and J. would love to come and visit, even if you can only manage half an hour or so.

    Keep going lad. We are all behind you.

    J. And J. xx


    I wish you the very best nailing your challenge.

    Premier Icon matt_outandabout

    Hug? I give good hugs, and usually find I have little to say in such situations.


    What an absolute bitch of a break, but sounds like you’ve done and are doing what you should and are in the right hands. Love n hugs, and get the fecker beat, attitude really counts – and thanks for sharing, it can’t be easy to talk about!


    I’d like to wish you all the best for what ever you may have to face in the future . Whilst i am not suffering from cancer the last couple of years have been difficult in our family, my father in law has had his bladder and all plumbing removed but now has lung cancer whilst my mother has had two different types of cancer in either breast . My uncle has been fighting cancer for the last decade and has just passed his 120th chemo treatment.
    The thing that has surprised me over the last few years is how resilient people can be and accepting of the changes to life that occur after diagnosis.
    I can recommend a book that may help with some of the questions you may have it is titled Cancer is a word,not a sentence by Dr Robert Buckman.

    Good luck.

    Premier Icon jamj1974

    Give cancer the **** beating it deserves! Positive thoughts are with you chap!

    Chris, the best of luck mate, you need to be strong (which you sound it)
    I’am a marsden man myself and do know of you, actually we have been on a ride together a while ago with different friends (panmechno) I think you know Ian Sykes?
    Any way like I said beat it man we are all behind you
    Take care


    Good Luck Chap!

    Kick it firmly in the goolies….


    That’s terrible to hear but great to know that you may have kicked it’s ass.
    Here’s hoping it has gone for good.

    Premier Icon DezB

    Hard for me to know what to say as my little bro has just restarted radiotherapy again today. Just get that thing beat.

    What a very well worded post given the circumstances. And you get a nod from me for biging up the NHS . Sometimes they get it wrong and its all too easy to criticise.
    Wishing you well in your battle and i sincerly hope you are victorious.


    All the best.


    I can’t other advice or experience of what your going through but I do wish you good luck.

    Premier Icon ton

    Chris, don’t know what to say mate, I feel really sad and gutted for you, shit things happen to nice people, god knows why.
    all I can say is keep strong mate, and hopefully you will come out on top. good luck mate.


    i just wish you a full recovery and kick it’s arse.apologies for not having anything constructive to add.

    Premier Icon Drac

    The very best of health to you and thoughts with you and family. I see shit like this almost daily and it never makes hearing or seeing someone with a serious illness any easier.

    Best of luck with your recovery.


    Good luck Chris , stay positive and kick it’s arse .
