The Silver Hiker on Prostate Cancer & ChemoCookery


'Get Social' Prize Draw

John Hanley aka The Silver Hiker 'Recipe for Life'

In early May this year, I was diagnosed with locally advanced prostate cancer at Lancaster Hospital Oncology. Gleason Score 8 (Max 10) meaning I have aggressive Cancer.
I’m so appreciative of Dr. Alison Birtle and all the special people at the Oncology Unit at Royal Lancaster Infirmary, and, from later in the year, to the Rosemere Centre, Preston, who not only treated my Dad so wonderfully well two years ago with his ‘bladder cancer’ (now in remission), but I’ll be going there for my radical radiotherapy over the course of 4-6 weeks.

I’ve taken this challenge by the horns and I intend to beat it.

In an effort to do this, I needed to prepare myself properly, both mentally and physically. That meant increased training & fitness and a closer look at nutrition and my diet. It would be foolhardy of me not to try and learn from this and pass on my experience.
Being an avid cook (worked in hotels and restaurants as a young man), I decided to do a #ChemoCookery project aimed at, not just patients,  but the loved ones of patients: the people who will be caring for them. The budget of £5 per meal sounds practical and I’ve had a terrific response.
I’m delighted to join forces with Colin James Web in an effort to raise awareness of this killer disease which affects 1 man in every 8 over the age 50, and 1 black man in every 4. Staggering statistics. We’re all in this together with one common goal. Raising awareness
Thank You
