Story

This May will mark the 10th year of Jess being free from Chronic Myleoid Leukaemia. To mark this occasion we would like to raise some money for Karen Morris Memorial Trust. Please take time to look at their website hhttp://kmmt.org.uk/. This fantastic charity supports leukaemia patients and their families by providing accommodation close to hospitals which offer life saving leukaemia treatments. Jane and our family and friends were lucky enough to benefit from one of the charity's Home from Home flats while Jess was in hospital in London. It gave such comfort to both of us that Mum could be so close, not to mention the relief of the financial burden that having to stay elsewhere would have caused.

The walk we are doing is 30 miles long...not the 13 miles that Jane sold the idea to Jess with!!  So quite a challenge for Jess who has a condition that means her joints are crumbling.

Please give anything you can to support this amazing charity and help them to continue Karen's legacy.
