Neil Tucker from St Helens is a Hodgkins lymphoma cancer survivor who braved the pain by having a shave of his full face and waxing of his body at Langtree Park, St Helens recently.
Neil, 38 said. “ My Just Giving page has raised £110 with the gift aid added it is £130. I had a fantastic day. I'm sure Stephen would of been chuckling to himself with the pain in my face but it was all worth it. I couldn't have done it myself without the help of good friends and all the good people who donated to the cause which is close to my heart.
“I had Tony Stewart who supplied all the wax and materials from his beauty clinic in Golborne. Kerrie Tarpie from C&K Hairdressers in Elephant Lane, Thatto Heath shaved my hair and beard. Kirsty Hackers from kreativekirsty succeeded in the waxing of my eyebrows, back,chest, underarms and shoulders.
Karen Caddock from St Helens RLFC also gave me the Red V Bar to complete my shave for the afternoon.”
“I would like to say a big thank you to theSPF for letting me choose the Steve Prescott Foundation to fundraise for and for taking photos and videos of the afternoon. Stephen was there for me when I was diagnosed with cancer and helped me through. So it’s my time to pay him back and say a big thank you.
I can’t wait to come up with my next fundraiser for the SPF. I’m hoping to plan a family fun day in August and a 40 mile bike ride from Media City in Salford to Otterspool in a mascot outfit!!”
The SPF is really grateful to Neil for his fantastic support. He has battled lymphoma with immense courage for 6 years and is always thinking of fund raising for others. Thank you so much to Neil for braving the pain during his latest challenge.
