A Worcestershire man cycled 370 miles from London to Amsterdam in memory of his late sister.

Jordan Clayton, 30 and from Pershore, spent four days completing the mammoth task to raise money for Brain Tumour Research after his younger sister, Chloe Clayton died from the disease at just 19 years of age.

Following months of trips to her GP, Chloe was referred to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for an MRI scan in September 2015 which revealed the mass on her brain.

Jordan said: “Chloe was curious about what having a brain tumour meant. Surely they’d take it out and she could carry on with her life?

“It’s almost as if we were both ignorant of what a brain tumour was because we hadn’t known anyone who had this disease.”

Surgeons removed 95 per cent of the tumour during a 10-hour operation and a biopsy revealed the tumour was a rare grade 4 and Chloe had six months of radiotherapy.

In July 2016, Chloe began to suffer violent seizures which became more frequent and an MRI showed the cancer had spread to other parts of her body.

She was placed under palliative care and died at home, surrounded by her family on September 15, 2016, just one year after being diagnosed.

Jordan set off on his cycle on June 10 of this year, having been forced to delay the challenge due to Covid.

So far, he has raised more than £3,700 for Brain Tumour Research.

“What helped me most was the team I was with, everyone was so encouraging and that helped me so much. Also knowing my sister would be so proud was always at the front of my mind when my legs started to give way,” said Jordan.

“I am so chuffed with raising the amount I have, and so many more donations were given whilst I was out riding.

“I can’t thank everyone enough who has supported me for this and I am already looking forward to the next challenge.”

Mel Tiley, community development manager at Brain Tumour Research, said: “We’re sorry to hear about Chloe’s death and are grateful to Jordan for sharing his sister’s story.

“It’s incredibly brave that he has been able to open up about the loss of a family member.

“Cycling hundreds of miles is an incredible achievement and the amount he has raised reflects this too. Thanks so much Jordan.”
