We fight blood cancer in northern England to give new hope to blood cancer patients

Charity Registration No. 1105891

Story

Hi I would just like to make people aware of blood cancer and the Bright red charity.
This charity is very personal to me, I came across the charity when my dad was diagnosed with  leukaemia for the first time, he has now been fighting for his life for 2 years, having previously being cleared of the disease for over a year, it recently came back and sadly  my family have recieved devastating news that he has just weeks to live aged just 54.
Through the Bright red charity my dad was able to have blood transfusions, which would give him energy to do simple things that we take for granted, like a short walk to the shop or a game of pool or cards.
Also through the work of the bright red charity my dad was able to have two bone marrow transplants, he would have passed away two years ago without them.
Regardless of my personal heartache I really cannot emphasise enough how much this charity need the help of every human being,  as like me and my family we never thought leukaemia would come to our door.
This charity are North East based and specialise in blood donation and blood cancer for both children and adults, as a small charity they are often forgot about, however their work is crucial. 
So please please please I ask you to help this charity and to help all those suffering with any kind of blood cancer by making a donation, whatever you can afford and thank you for taking the time to read this x
