Gary was diagnosed with a grade 3 bladder cancer in March 2016. Gary started Real Haynes in July 2018 as part of his recovery from Bladder Cancer. Gary is 6 months from remission and is still in BCG treatment. This will be a great event to help make men aware of bladder cancer.
Fight Bladder Cancer will be the charity partner for the day. Bladder Cancer is the 5th most popular cancer in Europe and prominent amongst men. It will be great to get local survivors and sufferers together on the day.
