I posted on here about a friend who had been given a limited amount of time due to cancer. I'm sorry to say he lost his fight this weekend. He had been given at best six months or so that was just over a year ago.

Good old Russ, a fighter to the last and like a dog with a bone would never give up.

R.I.P. mate.

    My condolences to all. My thoughts are also with you Frank as I too lost a close friend, although under different circumstances.

    Condolences Frank
    Never really though about cancer much until my dear Dad got it just over a year ago. His quick demise was a shock and a wake up call to all in my family. Its a terrible disease but as you say can it bring out the best in people. Hope the pain of losing a friend eases for you.

    Sorry to hear that Frank. I hope you don't mind me posting this ride which, if anyone is in the area and wants to support something that looks to be very worthy and connected with the thread (I am nothing to do with the org btw):
