Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Philippa was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (a Blood Cancer) on 20th April 2022 and very sadly died on 22nd April 2022 while being treated with Chemotherapy at St James’s Hospital in Leeds. Leaving three young children aged 12, 10 and 6.

We are raising funds for research into treatments of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Currently the survival rate for the type of Blood Cancer that Philippa had is just 10%. Research can make a real difference, through the work of BloodCancerUK the survival rates for childhood Leukaemia has improved from just 10% to over 85%. We want to support the same for Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

With BloodCancerUK we are looking to support funding a specific research project into Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. A 3 year fully funded research programme will cost £300,000.

Ken Orledge, Richard Orledge, Nic O’Brien, Jamie Jim Morrison, Ben Phillips, Dai Beattie, Julian Matthews, Rich Goodall and David Grainge (for half the length) are cycling from St Malo on the English Channel, La Manche to Nice on the Mediterranean in 13 days and we are incorporating climbing Mount Ventoux on the way. We are being kindly supported by Stephen Orledge and Jackie and Martin Phillips in a support vehicle.

We're a community dedicated to beating blood cancer. We do this by funding research and supporting those affected. Since 1960, we've invested over £500 million in blood cancer research, transforming treatments and saving lives. Right now, our community is funding 360 researchers and staff across the UK who are searching for the next breakthrough. The day we will beat blood cancer is now in sight and the researchers are determined to finish the job.

Thank you for donating.
