We fund research and provide support to improve blood cancer patients' lives


My name is Chris Upson. I am fundraising for Leukaemia Research in support of my brother-in-law, Milton Mermikides (34), who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia on 22nd November 2004.

On April 8th, Milton received a bone marrow transplant from his sister Alex. Milton is doing well after the operation. Latest details here:

On April 28th I successfully completed the Everest Sky Race, a 250km high-altitude trail race around the Everest region of Nepal. Details at

I would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me.

This webpage is open until June 18th for anyone who wishes to donate to Leukaemia Research. Chris
