I had total knee replacement surgery in December 2011. Now, 2 ½ years later, I am fitter and more active than for many years before surgery.

Sponsorship is sought for taking part in the Pan Mass Challenge (http://www.pmc.org/), a two-day event the donations to which go 100% to cancer research. I will be taking part on the 2nd day, an 80 mile ride the full length of Cape Cod.

Quite apart from the PMC being a good cause, another objective is to demonstrate that TKR patients can live full, active, sporting lives – indeed more active than some people who haven’t had this serious surgery.

If you would care to make a small (or large!) donation to this worthy cause, please go to http://www.roygardiner.com/pmc/donate.htm and follow the guidance there.
