Cancer Sufferer's Fundraising Challenge

A former cancer patient is attempting to raise around £50,000 for charity - equivalent to the cost of his own treatment.

Steve Stratton of Creekmoor was diagnosed with a sarcoma, a type of soft tissue tumour, in December 2008. He is now in remission and wants to raise money for Cancer Research UK to say thank you for the treatment and support he received.

The 32-year-old will be cycling solo from John O'groats to Lands End in September.

Steve told Heart: " As soon as the treatment finished and I started to get better I felt I really needed to prove something, you know, to thank god I'm alive still and pay back a little of the support from the charities that I had.

"When I found out I had the tumour, I decided I was going to deal with it, that it wasn't going to be the end of me. I became unfit obviously in my year off I could just about bend and do my shoes up but now I'm back into training I'm probably fitter now then I ever have been."
