Luke’s Coastal Walk raises over £40k for Melanoma Focus Charity

A 36-year-old man with  stage 4 incurable skin cancer is walking the Welsh Coastal Path for Melanoma Focus Charity

Luke’s journey first started back in 2014 when he noticed an unusual mole on his back and he went to his  GP to get it checked out.

Luke said: “It was confirmed as Melanoma skin cancer. Being ignorant, at the time, I thought “it’s just skin, it can be cut out”. Luckily for me it was localised melanoma and could simply be surgically removed. Fast forward five years later and I’m living a fulfilling life like any 30 plus year old. I’d developed a successful career in architecture and met my lovely partner Yuri…life was great.
