Story

In July 2016 our 5 year old son Callum was diagnosed with Burkitt's Leukaemia, a rare, fast-growing cancer of the blood. 

After 6 months of very intense treatment and expert care from the doctors and nurses at Birmingham Children's Hospital, Callum's cancer is now in remission.

Now 6 years old, Callum is enjoying getting back to normal - regaining his strength, attending school full time and playing with his friends and little sister, Emily.

On Sunday 24th September 2017, to help raise money for Cure Leukaemia, I will be participating in Velo Birmingham, a 100 mile cycle route through the Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside.
