Being a Yorkshireman, after his first text cost him over £20 to let close friends and family know about his diagnosis, he decided to write about his extraordinary journey in a blog, so that he could keep his family and friends updated for FREE!

By the end of his treatment, a staggering 32,000 people were regularly checking in to catch up on his progress.This is his truthful and inspirational account via the medium of blog posts, of his journey to fight, in his words, ‘The Big C’.£1 from every book sold will be donated to Weston Park Hospital-NIGEL SHORT- BIOGRAPHYNigel is 46 (although he tells everyone he’s 37!) and the founder director of business telecoms specialist supplier VOOT.

Nigel was adopted after his birth in 1967 and met his birth mother when he was 30 he is still in regular contact with her. He grew up in Aston, Sheffield but has also lived in Bahrain from 1977 for four years, the Lake District and in various parts of the Sheffield-Rotherham area. Coming full circle, Nigel currently lives just a few doors away from his parents...He married and had children Gina and Dan in 1993 and 95, sadly divorcing in 1998 and making the subsequent adjustment to only being a weekend parent. He finds running his own telecoms business allows him sufficient free time to pursue his other passions, which include at least one fundraising project each year.

In recent years, he has raised funds for Weston Park, Bluebell Wood and Cystic Fibrosis through events such as sponsored cycle rides from Coast to Coast and London to Sheffield and sponsored open water swims across Lake Grasmere.Nigel was introduced to Sheffield Wednesday from long before he remembers by his Grandad – and he has endured a lifetime of misery pretty much since then! Nigel is probably best known as the former Chairman of Wednesdayite, the supporters group of Sheffield Wednesday.Nigel’s world was turned on its head when he was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2007.

He spent Christmas Eve in eight hours of surgery followed by seven weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. He was given a 30% chance of living 5 years – and has lived through that and onwards. Nigel kept a blog during that treatment which still attracts over 1000 readers a month – many who are going through similar treatment – and he loves to receive emails from all over the world from people who have found the blog useful as a guide to what can be expected throughout their treatment. Those blog entries have now been compiled into an online and printed book – which will hopefully raise some money for the people at Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

During his treatment, Sheffield Wednesday fans raised over £10k for the charity and Nigel has set a personal goal of selling 50,000 books to raise £50,000 for this exceptional hospital, to which he- and many others- owe their lives.
