Charles is 65. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer a year ago. Unfortunately the cancer had spread. Shortly after finding out that the cancer had spread Charles developed a chest infection.
“I really lost the will to live, I was so scared by the cancer, and then so ill with the chest infection it didn’t seem worthwhile trying to get better.”
His doctor encouraged him to start walking as soon as he could after he recovered form his chest infection. He started with small short walks but as he felt better he went further more often.
“I’m now out and about, I feel I have a new lease of life. I know I have the cancer still but I’m living my life to the full and actually feel ok.”
