David’s feeling hot for hospital

Have your say

A CANCER survivor from Sheffield zipped himself into a wetsuit to tackle a rather sweaty one-hour zumbathon.

David Robinson, from Greenhill, raised more than £500 for Weston Park Hospital, where he was treated almost 30 years ago when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer aged just 21.

Now aged 50, David said: “At the time I found the lump there was no awareness of testicular cancer and I was so young. At 21 you think you’re immortal, and you don’t think these things can happen to you.

“But they found it early enough so I didn’t need chemotherapy or radiotherapy. I was extremely lucky. That’s why I did the zumbathon, and it was a really good laugh.

“I have a 24 year-old son and I am always telling him to check himself.”
