Most of you are aware that it has now been a year since Gaz left us. Time gives little consolation as the weeks and months roll on, but we must change and adapt to a new norm, enabling us to carry on with life as Gareth would want us to do. There are bad days but there are good days. One of the good days was the Rugby World...

To all of Gareth's generous supporters, friends and followers- thank you.

Following a series of recent charity events this year including Charlie and Henry Thomas's charity white collar boxing match, David Smart and present and former staff of Cookridge Hall Charity Football Match and my, William Byrne, Richard Nott and Sara...

Well, tomorrow (Monday 4th February) is World Cancer Day, so what better time to open-up Gareth’s blog once again. It is just over three months since Gareth sadly left us, leaving a gaping hole in the lives of all those who knew or were touched by him. Before we go on, I would just like to take this opportunity to apologise...

It is with a very deep and profound sadness that, after a brave and courageous fight with secondary cancer, Gareth Dunn sadly passed away peacefully on the 29th October 2018 aged just 27.

A short review of his life reveals that, after graduating from Cardiff University with a degree in History, followed then by a Masters in...

We live in the year 2018. The Year of the Dog, according to our Chinese amigos. We have machines that allow us to see through our skin, and into our bones. There are marvels of technology that keep us alive when our hearts and brains cease to function. We can even spit into a vial, and a programme will tell us everything ab...

Back in October, I found myself gazing, wistfully, longingly, down the Arno, standing on the apex of the Ponte Vecchio, the division between the two sides of the city of Lilies; the Tuscan capital of Florence, a place of which many of you will be familiar with. A place of endless romance, the muse of Michelangelo and Brunel...

I was watching the Channel 4 News the other night and, to my complete amazement (read: shock, horror, disgust), Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Jon Snow started talking about celebrities “with attitude”. My first reaction, as you would imagine, was my gag reflex, quickly followed by ten billion brain cells obliterating themselves...

In the immortal words of ABBA, “Money, money, money”. And now, forty-five years hence, with their place in this blog, Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid have finally, at last, made it. Because their ode to wealth (and their lack thereof, which is clearly bollocks, because I’ve been to the ABBA Museum in Stockholm, and they...

Love Island.

Love Island, horrifyingly so, is how I’m starting this weeks’ blog post. Love Island?! Porquoi, Gareth? Didn’t you find its narcissism, psychopathy and all-consuming cacophony of bullsh*t to be the very essence of what is wrong with the world – famine, corporate greed, terrorism? You’d be very much correct were...

“Chemotherapy is a steaming sack of sh*t, trust me fam” – Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

Naturally, this quote is absolute bollocks – Madiba would never say ‘fam’. If the great man was still with us, however, I’m sure he would surmise chemotherapy in the first part of that quote as such. Because, you guessed it, it is. A steaming...

Gareth W. Dunn

Hi, my name's Gareth, and I'm blogging about living with incurable cancer to raise money for Cancer Research UK before I pop my clogs. Take a look at my first post for some background, if you like. I'm totally hilarious, so it's worth a read, promise.


This blog is dedicated to my dearly departed friends, and two wonderful people taken before their time, James Averill and Sara Djoudi. Please give what you can!
