One of our beloved consultants has recently been diagnosed with myeloma. The charity he has chosen for us to raise funds on his behalf is Cure Leukaemia, which we are more than happy to do.
Dr Salim Shafeek is held in the highest esteem, both by patients and colleagues. He works tirelessly on behalf of his patients who have been diagnosed with blood cancer, which includes the disease he is currently undergoing treatment for. I think a few blisters and aching legs are the very least we can put up with to support him throughout this journey.!
Cure Leukaemia helps blood cancer patients to access pioneering drug and transplant treatments by funding a network of specialist research nurses across the UK. Without these nurses, to ensure patients are monitored and cared for, clinical trials of these new treatments would not run and patients, that have exhausted standard treatment options, would miss out on potentially lifesaving therapies. Every penny raised for Cure Leukaemia helps save lives and also hastens global progress towards the eradication of all forms of blood cancer.
