On the 26th March 2012, I witnessed the passing away of my truely inspirational Grandad at Chesterfield Hospital. The cause of his death was known as an aggressive Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, however at the time of his illness the hospital couldn't identify which type of Lymphoma he had. My grandad had a CT scan and went through two unsuccessful biopsies in a short period of time. Unfortunately, within this time the Lympthoma had spread aggressively around his body which resulted in his death.
Therefore, the money I funraise will go towards the Macmillan Cancer Support to improve the chances of people suffering from cancer.
