Menphys Sports Club with James Golding
Our Members Club with a Sporting Twist returns on March 30th 2023 with Special Guest James Golding.
Our Members Club with a Sporting Twist returns on March 30th, 2023 with endurance cyclist and cancer survivor James Golding.
James was 28 when he was told he had cancer. The diagnosis came after he had been suffering from excruciating back pain for months – but struggled to get doctors to take him seriously and run tests.
It was only when he was in so much agony that his mum took him to A&E, that a tumor the size of a grapefruit was found in his abdomen.
The position of the tumour meant it was impossible to be operated on, so he had to have the strongest chemotherapy possible in order to have a chance of survival.
The chemo was so effective at killing the cancer, it also killed a number of James’ vital cells and tubes, causing complications, including septicaemia and peritonitis, which led to him having emergency surgery, and being placed in an induced coma for two weeks. He then had to stay in a High Dependency Unit for more than a month, where he would have to slowly regain the strength just to be able to wiggle his toes.
When he was eventually well enough to be discharged, one day he saw an old bike owned by a lodger lying around his home in Rugby and decided to go for a ride, having not cycled for years.
That ride changed his life and we cannot wait for you to hear James story from here…
