Last year our mum was diagnosed early stage breast Cancer following a routine mammogram. The NHS was extremely effective with her treatment plan and within a few months she had surgery to remove the cancer followed by radiotherapy. During her treatment she underwent tests which led to a diagnosis of Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). CLL is a serious condition, but it develops slowly. If you're diagnosed with CLL, you might not need treatment right away. CLL can't usually be permanently cured, but treatment can often keep the cancer cells under control.

Stèph and I have decided to run the Brighton marathon to raise money for Leukaemia UK to help fund research for better treatment and eventually a cure.

We are very grateful for any donations.

Thanks so much!
