Story

2011 I was diagnosed with T-cell lmyphoblastic lymphoma which at the time I thought I only had a bad chest, but if I hadn't taken the advice of my girlfriend kelly who i had only been with for 6 months i would have died within 2 weeks if I hadn't gone to A&E to be checked out. From attending A&E having a biopsy performed to being diagnosed was 3 days. My world was shattered. I was immediatey admitted Into hospital and spent 16 weeks In isolation as the cancer was so rapid that treatment had to begin straight away. I had an operation to have a hickman line put In which in itself wasnt straight forward due to the size of the mass, it was put in so that they could take blood easily and administer the chemotherapy straight into my blood supply. It was a new trial of treatment which was very intense and spending 16 weeks In a room can take it's toll, not just on me but my girlfriend now fiance and family. The drs and nurses who treated me got us all through it and made sure that we were all looked after. Through all that were involved in my treatments, transfusions they got me into remission and I'm am here today. I am raising funds for these amazing people and department so that I can give something back, the funds will be used to build a garden which is attached to the chemotherapy unit, so that patients and relatives have a quiet and peaceful area to enjoy. The funds will also allow them to purchase additional equipment and furniture that is so needed for patients that are going through treatment. I am also running an event in my office where I work to support the cause. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way to giving the patients a place to relax and enjoy. Thank you
