As many of my close friends and family know, MyelomaUK is a charity that have been supporting my family for over 6 years now. In June 2012 my mum was diagnosed with Myeloma, a cancer affecting the plasma cells in the blood. We have been very lucky with the variety of treatments available and MyelomaUK help by researching for new and innovative treatment.
As many of you know, I HATE any form of cardio training and running is my worst nightmare - sob. SO, this Summer, somehow I've let my boyfriend convince me to run a 10 mile course with 25 muddy obstacles.
This is my biggest challenge yet so please please donate as little or as much as you can, all will be muchly appreciated!
Myeloma UK has been my charity of choice since I met Lynn just under a year ago. I've seen first-hand the impact that your donations can make not just on her life, but the lives of her nearest and dearest - and that's true for the 17,500 people diagnosed with myeloma in the UK today.
They get no government funding, relying solely on public donations to do their vital work. It might be the next piece of research that gives individuals and families time together which is absolutely priceless.
