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.
This will be my first half marathon and I hope by doing so simply as running that it can have a huge impact on someone that is suffering with this terrible disease.
And finally I'm doing this for my Daughter, I want my Daughter to be proud of me and look back in years to come and say I made a difference.
