Story

In September 2016 we were given the devastating news that at the age of 41 I had stage 3 Myeloma. In some ways I was pleased to have a diagnosis, I had felt unwell for 9 months and at times in total despair with pain. I spent 6 weeks as an in-patient at the Queen Alexandra Hospital – Portsmouth (admitted via A & E), 18 weeks in a spinal and neck brace made by the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital – London, induction chemotherapy for 16 weeks and a stem cell transplant in March 2017 at Southampton General Hospital.

We had never heard of Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma as it impacts multiple places in the body. I have lambda light chain myeloma that affects 20% of those diagnosed with this cancer. Myeloma is currently incurable however it is manageable.

I am cycling London to Paris to raise awareness about Myeloma, raise funds for Myeloma UK and to help others diagnosed / impacted by Myeloma and how although our lives have changed we have moved forward.  This funding page is for both me and my Husband Ian xx
