That's what friends are for - support for former Mr Warrington Guardian

THESE men have all shaved their heads to raise money for charity in tribute to a friend who has been diagnosed with cancer.
Ryan Farrington, aged 26, of Houston Gardens, Chapelford, started a 10 week course of chemotherapy on Wednesday.
He is determined to keep battling against the disease despite further tests on Friday revealing the testicular cancer has spread to his stomach.
The former Mr Warrington said: “I was gutted when I found out the cancer had spread.
“I’ve still got a chance for a really good outcome.
“The doctors are hoping the chemotherapy will kill all the tumours.
“If not, I’ll need another operation on my stomach.
“It wasn’t the news I was hoping for but I’m determined to keep positive.”
Part of that approach saw Ryan organised the fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Research at Warrington Hospital on Saturday.
He was joined by 16 friends in the head shave that has helped raise more than £2,500.
And the electrician has also received a card of support from former Everton and Celtic player Alan Stubbs, who recovered from cancer in 2001.
Ryan added: “I’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction and I just like to say to everyone how much I appreciate their support.”
