Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  You can follow my progress at:  www.chrisbigjogle.com

When I was about 8 years old I had my first encounter with cancer.  I sang in my local church choir and the head chorister was diagnosed with leukaemia.  He was about 14.  3 months later I was told he was dead.  At 8 you don't understand the details, but I knew I wasn't going to see him again.

Since then blood cancers seem to have claimed the lives of people I have known or their families and friends on a regular basis.  2 years ago an ex-colleague and friend lost their daughter to leukaemia at 21 while she was at university; and just last year my wonderful sister-in law, Ruxi, passed away after a long fight with myeloma.

If you would like to follow my progress please check out my blog at www.chrisbigjogle.com.  If you want to say "Hi" or even walk part of the way with me I would love to see you.

Thanks so much for any donation you can make.
