Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As some of you may know, last October I mass-emailled a plea for Bone Marrow donations to help my friend Rebecca Bray (my partner's cousin and best friend) in her battle against Leukaemia.

Despite a good response to the session, and the best efforts of Royal Hallamshire Hospital, unfortunately it was not to be, and on the 31st March this year, Becci passed away.

On the 5th September  Robin Mangham, Matt Gormley and I will be taking part in the Bupa Great Yorkshire Run and raising funds for The Anthony Nolan Trust, which provides lifesaving donors for patients like Becci in need of a bone marrow transplant (http://www.anthonynolan.org.uk/about).

So please dig deep and donate now.  Even better than a financial donation would be to sign up to the bone marrow donation register (http://www.anthonynolan.org.uk/donating/howtojointheregister).  Over 16,000 children and adults in the UK are currently awaiting a live-saving match.  most people that sign up to the register never end up donating as matches are so rare, but you would have the real potential to save lives.

Many many thanks for your time and help.
