Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia is a cancer of the White Blood cells and one of the commonest cancer in the western world, yet it still isn't a well known disease. 

A few years ago, after attending for a routine mammogram, a close relative of mine was found to have inflamed Lymph Nodes and was diagnosed within 6 weeks of this routine appointment as having CLL. Since then, they have gone through a course of chemotherapy and are thankfully in a remission stage but we never know how long for. The sad side of CLL is that it can not be cured so there will always be good times and bad times with this disease.

CLLSA are a patient led charity that support CLL patients, their families and their carers. They provide opportunities for patients to gain more relevant and current information on the treatments of the disease, meet specialists in the Haematology world and provide education days so that patients and their relatives can understand more the cause and nature of CLL.

It is vital that we support this charity and spread the word of CLL so that more is known about it.
