A BRAVE Bucks man is to take on a 100-mile cycle challenge in memory of his “absolute warrior” brother, who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer.

High Wycombe-born Keith Cordice is training for the fight of his life as he attempts a intense 100-mile cycling challenge so he can take on pancreatic cancer face-to-face in memory of his late brother Godfrey who died from pancreatic cancer six years ago.

He was 55 when he was diagnosed in November 2013 and despite punishing rounds of chemotherapy, he died nine months later.

Keith will be cycling the gruelling Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

The charity’s focus is to discover and research faster diagnosis for the disease.

Speaking about his brother, Keith, 52, said: “It was a terrible blow for the whole family when Godfrey was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

“We were all in shock because he was such a fit man. He went through many gruelling rounds of chemotherapy and battled the disease like the true an absolute warrior he was.

“He was an absolute legend someone who would always be working so he could leave a legacy behind for his family and he certainly did that.

“Playing golf with him was some of the best times I had. Raising funds to help tackle this cruel illness is the least I can do if it means being able to help someone else spend more time with their loved ones.

“Godfrey would always give, so I am continuing from where he left off. This one is for you brother, you’ll be with me all the way.”

Sue Collins, director of fundraising at Pancreatic Cancer UK, said: “We would like to wish Keith the very best of luck.”
