Truckman CEO completes 105-mile cycle ride in aid of Myeloma UK




Truckman CEO completes 105-mile cycle ride in aid of Myeloma UK

Truckman Executive Chairman, Mike Wheeler, has raised almost £400 for Myeloma UK after completing the gruelling 105-mile Aberdovey Bike Ride.

Mike, who runs the Dudley-based vehicle accessory manufacturer and distributor, took around seven hours to complete the route between Wolverhampton and Aberdovey, on the west coast of Wales.

He was joined on the annual charity event by a group of friends who regularly cycle together on Sunday mornings.

Mike was riding to support his sister-in-law Deb Gascoyne, who was diagnosed ten years ago with myeloma, a currently incurable form of bone cancer.

He said: “The challenge of cycling 105 miles is nothing to the challenges she has faced and continues to face over the coming years. Her courage and belief that a cure will be found soon is an inspiration to me.”

Debs, who underwent a bone marrow transplant eight years ago, is now preparing for another round of treatment after suffering a relapse in November.

He added: “My thoughts during the ride were never far away from Deb and her family. She is currently awaiting further treatment, which means three weeks in hospital followed by six months recuperation.

“I’m pleased to have raised both awareness and funds for Myeloma UK, which has just launched a new research programme, and offers a range of programmes and services designed to support patients and their friends and family.

"I would like to say I did plenty of training for the ride, but this would be a lie. I have promised myself that I will prepare next year as the pain in the rear was definitely higher than the previous year.

“It was tough, especially going through the Welsh hills, but arriving in the seaside town of Aberdovey was lovely and the support of the crowds on the street was fantastic. As was the reward of a few pints on the seafront.

Myeloma can affect around 17,500 British people at anyone one time and accounts for 15 percent of blood cancers and two percent of all cancers.
