Richard Hounslow with his silver Olympic medal

Geoff’s friend, Richard Hounslow, with his silver Olympic medal

Four years ago, I had to give up my ticket to watch the London Olympics to go to a hospital appointment and be told I had PMP and had only ‘a few months’ if Basingstoke could not offer me CRS and HIPEC. I’d been going to watch my good friend, Richard Hounslow, who went on to win a silver medal!

So one MOAS, six months of chemotherapy and now living with PMP, I’m here in Rio de Janeiro where I finally got to see him win another silver medal in the C2 Men’s Canoe Slalom. I’m just amazed I’m still here to witness this fantastic event.

Finding time out from his celebrations, Richard told me that he “… loved having you guys out here…”. I’d like to say thank you so much to everyone who has been with me on this journey.
Geoff
