My Father was diagnosed with Leukaemia after a stay in acute assessment and after a week in intensive care.  He was so brave and fought such a battle not only from his illness with his organs that had begun to fail him but also because of the diagnosis of leukaemia. We understood that the damage to his bone marrow had created problems with his white blood count and after many blood tests and issues, he had been so strong mentally and physically while trying to overcome the illness that had finally hospitalised him with care and assistance.  Many Men while being over 80 who are diagnosed have problems excepting the disease and leukaemia UK is a great charity that i feel is worth fundraising for to help the limited number of sufferers who can survive the disease. I feel that we will find strength from helping fundraise for the charity to help others with the care and help that is needed.
