Story

The last time I rode a bicycle I broke my jaw! Nearly 15 years later I’m finally getting back in the saddle so please do read on...

I’ve been aware of Cure Leukaemia ever since I met leukaemia survivor Adam Joyce. Several years into a relationship with him later I’m finding I’m getting more and more involved in the #CLFamily.

Last year I supported this ride, finding my voice in the cheering squad! I was so inspired by all the riders I finally bit the bullet and thought I’d give it a go. 

I’m really excited to do my bit now as while I haven’t had leukaemia or witnessed its effects first hand, the charity and its founders are responsible for giving me the life I have now by curing Adam. Without him my life would be very different and so for that, Cure Leukaemia I will be forever grateful!

I now have until I get to Paris on Sunday 15th September to raise everything I can to help fund the amazing team based in Birmingham where I now call home and help other patients, their families and their futures.

38,000 people are diagnosed and 14,000 die from blood cancers in the UK every year. Every penny raised through Cure Leukaemia's London 2 Paris ride will go towards supporting the groundbreaking work of Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and his team of clinicians based at the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and now at Centres across the UK. 

Cure Leukaemia's funding of specialist research nurses across the UK helps connect blood cancer patients with treatments that are not currently available through standard care. These clinical trials are potentially life saving and not only help save lives but also hasten global progress towards eradicating blood cancer within 25 years but with increased funds that dream could become a reality sooner! 

If you are able to help me reach my target of £3000 it would be truly amazing, and if I fall off again - at least it will be worth it!
