Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

My mother, Eileen, died just after Christmas, in 1994, from complications related to her treatment of Multiple Myeloma. She was diagnosed with MM in October 1994 and was having chemotherapy. The type of Myeloma she had, was very rare for a woman her age. Before she was diagnosed we had never heard of the disease, and 18 years ago the treatment was pretty crude and basic. They have come a long way, and made new advances and progress in the treament of Myeloma since then, and I think my Mum would be pleased that I can raise some money to help further this cause. 

Those of you who know me, know I am a prolific user of Facebook and Twitter, and frankly, I am a bit of a social media addict. I do spend a lot (too much) time on both. I decided, to honour my Mum, and to raise some money for Myeloma UK, to have a 60 day "social media" blackout. I will be handing over the passwords to my Tiwtter and Facebook accounts, to my husband, and signing off from the 1st of January 2013. 

I know a lot of poeple have laughed and said they don't think I can do this, but I reckon I can. It will be good for me, and it will raise money for a good cause.

I will still be blogging and will be updating on how I'm doing. You can find my Blog at www.themadhouseofcatsandbabies.com
