I come in peace: cancer has no colours
 
 
#Cancer has no colours

Firstly hello all and I hope it is ok with the moderators to post this.

My name is Tony Munday, I am a 49 year old unfit Millwall supporter (someone has to be) who is heading for the knackers yard. On Sunday March 18th I am running the Brentwood half marathon on behalf of a 3 year old little girl called Isla Caton who is suffering from the same horrible disease that took Bradley Lowery the boy who captured the nations hearts.
The disease is Neuroblastoma and the treatment for this is only available in America.
On Tuesday young Isla had an operation to move a tumour from her brain and now goes back to chemo treatment to clear the cancer.
Through the Bradley Lowery foundation the family need to raise £400,000.

Hereís the catch.

Isla Caton is born into a staunch West Ham family and as a Millwall supporter I am using this as leverage to raise as much money for her as possible.
The rivalry between the two clubs is huge and I pray they lose every week.

I set my original target at £1000 and declared I would run in a West Ham shirt if reached. Due to having many West Ham friends who I have wound up over the years I reached the £1000 in 24 hours.
I added targets
£2000 to run in full kit
£3500 to do crossed hammers at finish line
£7000 to run with dyed claret and blue hair
Iíve topped the £7000 so the hair will be dyed, but Iím gonna raise the target again to £12,000 as this girl needs as much as possible. The Bradley Lowery foundation is a marvellous tribute to the sadly missed youngster.

Normally I wouldnít even look at a West Ham kit let alone wear one but Iím prepared for the stick Iíll get for the rest of my life so this amazing little girl gets what she needs. My pain will be nothing compared to what she is going through.
Itís a very small sacrifice for me to make.

I am joining forums of all 92 league clubs to post this message and hoping the football family come together to help smash this target and help send this incredibly brave little girl to America to save her life by donating to my just giving page.

In my eyes cancer has no colours especially in children.
Islaís twitter address is @islasfight, feel free to look and see what sheís going through

Here is my just giving page below, hopefully you will find it in your hearts to donate to the cause through my run.
Forget the £7,000 target lets smash it to as much as possible, this angel deserves a chance at life

I thank you all so much in advance

Good luck against Gillingham today, like Millwall, youíre one of the few proper clubs still around. And in Kenny you have a great manager.

Thank you for all your support

I met young Isla and her family last night for the first time when I went to collect the West Ham kit from their house.
A very very humbling experience.

Islaís parents are so strong and Isla was running around like any normal 3 year old just a week after an op to remove a brain tumour with the only visible signs being her face and head are totally bruised from the surgery

An inspiration for all

Where do I start!!!

Todayís Brentwood half marathon was cancelled due to the inclement weather and will not be rescheduled.
I took all the donations on the premise that I would do the forfeits I put in place.
So I will honour them all.

So now on Saturday 31st March, I will run a much more dangerous route from Cold Blow Lane to the Olympic Stadium via the New Den and the Boleyn ground wearing full West Ham kit and having claret and blue dyed hair. I will do crosses hammers at the finish where I will meet up with some of Islaís fundraisers and then take in the West Ham v Southampton game

Iíll be surprised if I donít get a whack from someone along the route, more so through Millwall territory in Bermondsey!!

I hope this will satisfy all of those who have donated.
Wish me luck, I need it!!

I thank you all once more for your incredible support

One more day until I run into the valley of death!
Look out for the Goals pull out in The Sun this weekend, itís possible there will be a bit in there about Isla, the run and the coming together of football fans to raise this money
