First Overseas Team Member is Special

We are elated to announce our first overseas participant in the SPF 1000 Mile Walk 2021. It is someone very special to the SPF family.

Dr Anil Vaidya, a name that may ring a bell with some SPF supporters. Anil was the surgeon consultant who operated successfully on Steve Prescott performing the World's first ever multi visceral transplant operation for a patient with Pseudomyxoma, in 2013. Sadly, Steve passed away three weeks later as a result of Graft Versus Host Disease, but he was cancer free.

The SPF, through Trustee Linzi Prescott, have continued to remain in contact with Anil and supported his great work on Pseudomyxoma and Cancer research.
