Above and Beyond is the charity for the hospitals in Bristol. We are so lucky to have such excellent healthcare available to us (that you don't have to pay for to benefit from!) in our city.
Alex has been receiving chemotherapy at BHOC (Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre) since his further diagnosis in March. The speed in which he has been seen and the care he has received so far has been amazing.
He has been lucky enough to experience the young adult ward (http://www.uhbristol.nhs.uk/patients-and-visitors/your-hospitals/bhoc/teenage-and-young-adult-cancer-service/), which is for teenagers and young adults up to 25 years old. With wifi, private rooms, and a communal area and kitchen that's comfortable and almost relaxing, it makes a pretty shitty experience less poop to go through.
I will be doing 2 Race for Lifes (Lifii? Life's? Is there a plural?) in July, of which all fundraising for that will go directly to Cancer Research, who do some pretty amazing work, but we wanted to set something up so you could donate to the people who are actually making him better (because they're pretty damn awesome). As always, there will be more updates over on my blog - http://www.ceriselle.org/blog/tag/race-for-life/
The money raised from this page will be split between BHOC and It's In The Bag, who are the testicular cancer charity based in the South West.
Please dig deep, and if you're a UK tax payer, make sure to tick the Gift Aid box for that little bit extra!
