When Billie received her leukaemia diagnosis, her response was to find a way to help others

Billie, 31, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) two years ago. She received so much support in response to her leukaemia diagnosis that she set up Billie's Fund to give something back to the charities that helped her during her treatment.

Supported by her family and friends, Billie's Fund has already raised £18,000 and we are delighted that Billie has chosen Leukaemia UK as one of her beneficiary charities.

Billie created a blog which documents her story – from the shock of her diagnosis to the lows of her chemotherapy treatment, the changes in her appearance, dealing with depression and coping with the frustration of being stuck in a hospital bed while everyone else's lives appeared to be continuing as normal. 

She describes how the unstinting support of her mum and her husband got her through her worst days.
