The Keith Bradshaw Appeal

£1,840 of £100,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 68 months
As you may know Keith Bradshaw stepped down from being Chief Executive at the M.C.C. after almost 5 demanding years which saw many changes but most importantly was the start of the process for the total refurbishment of Lords Cricket Ground which culminated in the "Vision for Lords".
What you probably did not know that outside of family issues which necessitated him going back to his native Australia, he was also not a well man as he had contracted cancer.
He is now Chief Executive at the South Australian Cricket Association, but he has just received confirmation his cancer has returned. He has been advised he needs extensive medical treatment and on top of this has just had a pelvis reconstruction hip replacement to repair the damage caused by the cancer which has attacked this area of his body.
After the operation, besides the obvious pain and discomfort there will be a period of convalescence and rehabilitation. This will inevitably lead to a significant disruption of his normal life and in addition he must shortly resume chemotherapy once given the all clear from the operation.
Unfortunately, there are a number of medical expenses associated with these treatments and the subsequent after care. As a result of the recognition of all the work he did whilst at the M.C.C. a fund is being launched to try and raise £100,000. Keith is very keen to see the vast majority of the monies raised donated to the causes below which will aid research in finding a cure for his condition of multiple myeloma ( presently classified as a terminal disease) and Birmingham Childrens Hospital to rebuild their children's cancer department.
In the event that more funds are raised than are required for Keith's medical expenses, these funds will be split equally between Myeloma UK http://www.myeloma.org.uk/ and the Laurie Engel Fund supporting Birmingham Children's Hospital appeal to raise £4 million to rebuild their cancer department http://www.laurieengelfund.org/.
