I'd like to put in a special thanks to Gill and Jeff Brown from Upper Hutt who are the first people to stump up some cash for the cause. Gill and Jeff are my Aunt and Uncle as Gill was my mothers Sister and experienced first hand the Cancer that ravaged my father as my mum Nursed him over the years.

Gill and Jeff thanks - I appreciate the support and vote of confidence and hope I can only do you proud in this venture.


It is great to be able to support you Danny and we are proud of what you are setting out to achieve.  
I know both your Mum and Dad (Alan and Julie) were always proud of you and I could just imagine your Dad's smile and the support he would have been keen to give you in the challenge you are undertaking.
The ravages and grief cancer caused you all as a family were hard to understand.  Praying for a miracle for that was all that was left in the finish.
We are looking forward to watching and supporting you in this Fundraising venture for such a worthwhile cause.  
You never know we might just make it to the start to see you off. Now get a boat, big enough to take that big frame of yours and keep you safe.
And to anybody else who would like to join both Jeff and myself in donating to such a worthy cause dont stand back thinking you will do it tomorrow or next week, do it now and dont forget to tell your friends about this wonderful Nephew of mine and his goals for Cancer Research .
