Saskia is 14 years old, a beautiful girl with her whole life ahead of her. The daughter of my lifelong dearest friend. Diagnosed only last week with Acute lymphoblastic leukeamia. Apart from the usual friend and family support stuff that one can offer, I didn't know what else to do to help, so being a keen swimmer anyway, I thought I may be able to put myself to better use and raise some money to help with ongoing research, treatment and support for families in the same position. So I will be swimming the equivalent to swimming the channel in my local pool over a two week period. Please support me if you can. Claire McGahern
