Team story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page. I am 24 years old and live in Oxfordshire. I am doing a cycle ride which will take me from cape wrath to lands' end, thats 986 miles in just 10 days!! The reason i have chosen to do this for Starlight is to help Starlight grant a wish to a seriously ill child like they have done for my brother.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">My Brothers&rsquo; story.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>My brother, Charlie was an everyday boy who loved his motorsport. His ambition in life is to become a Formula one mechanic and work with his hero Lewis Hamilton. Charlie studied hard at school at got into a motorsport college doing an extended diploma in motorsport engineering. However in March 2011 Charlie had noticed a lump develop in his leg and in May 2011, aged 16, he was given the devastating that the lump was a Liposarcoma tumour. (Liposarcoma is one of the rarest type of cancer which develops in the fat cells of your body, Statistics show that roughly 2.5 people in every million get a Liposarcoma tumour and they are typically aged 40 and above.) In July 2011 Charlie had to have 25 treatments of radiotherapy over 5 weeks, which was an extremely hard thing for Charlie to manage. With radiotherapy complete Charlie&rsquo;s operation was booked and in august 2011 he had an operation to remove the tumour and save his life. With all this happening he had to put a halt on his dream. During this time Charlie was trying to keep upbeat about the whole thing however inside he was devastated. Then as a family we contacted Starlight and the quickly got in touch with Charlie and raised his spirits. They invited him to many events and helped him take his mind off the trauma he was going through. However that isn't all they did. They gave Charlie a chance to have a wish granted and there was only one thing he wanted, to meet his hero Lewis Hamilton. Starlight quickly got on the case and in December 2011 Charlie was invited to Starlight&rsquo;s 'Winter Grand Prix party' where he got to get up close and personal with all the F1 cars, However unknown to Charlie the Whole evening was an auction to raise money for his F1 wish. Thanks to the auction and Starlight Charlie was granted his wish and in May 2012 he will go to the Monaco Grand Prix and meet his hero and 2008 F1 champion Lewis Hamilton.</p>
