Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Saturday 15th August (postponed from 23rd May!), I will taking off at an airfield near Upminster... standing on the wing of a bi-plane - very exciting!

This time I am raising money on behalf of Team Margot Foundation for Delete Blood Cancer

In October 2013, 14-month-old Margot Martini was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of blood cancer, and required a bone marrow transplant (also known as a stem cell transplant) to survive. Family and friends came together as Team Margot to raise awareness of Margot’s plight and others desperately seeking a blood stem cell donor match. Margot eventually found a suitable donor match and received her bone marrow transplant in February 2014. Unfortunately, Margot’s Leukaemia was extremely aggressive. She relapsed during the summer and passed away, aged 2 years and 2 months, on the 27 October 2014.

Team Margot continues to honour Margot’s legacy as a permanent Foundation. They campaign for more potential bone marrow / stem cell donors to join the register – especially people with a mixed genealogy. Margot’s mixed family background was the key obstacle to finding her a perfect match.

As a grant giving Foundation, they also support people and projects close to their hearts – more specifically charities and research related to bone marrow / stem cell transplants, such as blood disorders like Leukaemia and those caring for child cancer patients.

Everyone at Team Margot is a volunteer. Every penny raised for the Foundation will go to the wonderful people and causes they support.
