About Danny Porter Foundation

We’re a Sheffield based organisation, working to help people and hospitals with their fight against cancer.

The Danny Porter Foundation will provide donations and grants to other charities providing research, support, care and equipment to people suffering from cancer and/or requiring nuerological surgery. The foundation also exists to share Danny’s experience. It will not provide advice on treatment, opinion on research or methods – that is not our place. What it will do is share some of the feelings he experienced, the situations he has been through – advice that can help others through their own experience with cancer. So that hopefully people in similar positions will know that what they are feeling is not unusual. It will also demonstrate that there’s a life to be enjoyed following major treatment of this type. We will aim to give hope, support and reassurance to others in similar positions through the telling of Dan’s story. Finally, the foundation will help patients whose friends and family are struggling to provide the support they would like due to their personal circumstances.

  • For me this event is about a remarkable individual who lives life true to himself... courageous, loyal, numerous and generous...Dan looked at a mountainous problem in the face and he did not ask us to lead him over it. He asked us to walk beside him and be his friend. That is what he taught me and that lesson is more valuable than anything I was taught at medical school or during surgical training.

  • I don’t know how he/they do it but I’m glad they do and it remains a humbling privilege to have him as a bloody good mate. If like last year he’s there at the finish it would be a dream but regardless even if he’s not and is recovering well that’ll supersede anything I may achieve on the day or afterwards.
