We're helping to raise funds for Combat Stress
Combat Stress is The UK's leading charity for Veterans mental health. For over a century Combat Stress has been helping former servicemen and women deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression, focusing on those with complex mental heath issues related to their military service.
Andrew Graham has raised over £50,000 for Worldwide Cancer Research, for his latest challenge he will be running up Pen Y Fan 10 times (55 miles continuously) in order to raise funds for Combat Stress. Pen Y Fan is the highest mountain in southern Britain and is famously recognised as a landmark mountain in selection for British Special Forces.
When I was given 3 months to live in 2002, due to Cancer I flippantly told my Consultant - 'Let's crack on with whatever needs to happen, this isn't my greatest challenge!' Those that know, those that suffer and those that live with the effects of mental health issues, will understand!
Combat Stress are the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For over a century, they’ve helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).They’re on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So when a veteran is having a tough time, they’re there to help them tackle the past and take on the future. As a sufferer of CPTSD (it never goes away) and Cancer Survivor, I am now fit enough and fortunate enough to cope with my challenges - I will do whatever I can to help others, in less fortunate positions. Combat Stress takes you to dark places - I hope to be able to brighten someone's day by raising funds and awareness. Help me, help those, that now suffer because they chose to help us!
