Birthday marks end of chemo and 1000-km fundraiser

Stepping out from St Bernard’s Hospital on Sunday morning, Simon Morgan was celebrating more than just his birthday: He had just finished his last chemotherapy session and was about to complete his 1,000-km challenge.

Mr Morgan set himself the challenge of running, cycling and swimming 1,000 kilometres while he received treatment for bladder cancer.

Last Sunday, he reached his goal.

The 52-year old set himself the challenge to raise funds for Cancer Relief Gibraltar.

So far, he has raised over £4,200.

He started chemotherapy on May 10 and continued to receive it once a week at St Bernard’s, every Sunday until last weekend.
