Congratulations to Jane Tomlinson on completing her epic cycle ride across the States! Despite being in tremendous pain, terminal cancer sufferer Jane managed to cycle 4,200 miles in nine weeks from San Francisco to New York raising £100,000 to date. The money is to be shared between various British and American cancer and children’s charities. Since being diagnosed with terminal cancer, Jane has already raised well in excess of £1million for cancer charities prior to her “Ride Across America”, by completing a variety of triathlons and a bike ride from Rome to Leeds. No mean feat for a woman who was diagnosed with advanced metastatic breast cancer 6 years ago and given just 6 months to live. Jane is surely an inspiration to all of us and living proof that it is possible for any of us to achieve the impossible, whatever our circumstances. Well done Jane!
