A cancer diagnosis was the last thing Stafford resident Paul Giles expected at 57 years old. After a long career with the RAF, Paul was a keen sportsman who kept himself fit and healthy. Even after leaving the Forces would think nothing of cycling 30 miles at a time.
“I’d never seen the inside of a hospital before. I never smoked, drank only moderately and exercised five or six times a week – I was in the gym right up until the night before I was diagnosed – but all that is never going to prevent you from getting something like cancer. Cancer takes no prisoners,” said Paul.
