Go on, give a little

So today's post is not like my usual posts but I think it's the most important one I've done so far.  This is my cousin Mark and as you can see he has undergone quite a transformation.  He is getting ready to take part in a body show to raise awareness and money for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of his father Stephen.

For anyone who doesn't know, Macmillan Cancer Support is an organisation which lends a great deal of help and support to people suffering with cancer and their families and friends.  Stephen was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2013 and sadly passed away at the end of last year.  The Macmillan nurses helped the family a great deal and even made it possible for Stephen to live his last days at home surrounded by the people he loved.  Every day this organisation changes lives and helps people.  If you would like to make a contribution please click here and donate to Mark's Just Giving page.  He has put in a lot of hard work (as you can see in the picture) to raise funds to support Macmillan.  I don't think I could put my body through that.  He is an inspiration, the amount of work that goes into this kind of training is insane!

Click here and like his facebook page too.  You can read in his own words his reasons for doing this and how he has gone about it.

Once again here's the Just Giving page.  Please time a moment to donate.  You can even do it by text.  It's super easy and your money goes to a really great organisation.
Thank you
