My dad died 2 years ago after being diagnosed with Large Granular Leukaemia and MDS.I want to raise money for Leukaemia.
In memory of
30th May 1951 - 16th Mar 2016
I have since raised over £2,000 for MDS and would now like to raise money for Leukaemia. Dad was the 13th person in the country to diagnose both diseases and whilst receiving excellent care more research is needed for this rare disease. We miss him terribly.

Five-year survival rates for leukaemia have more than tripled in the last 40 years. But despite this progress, around 4,600 people still lose their lives to the disease every year. Almost a third of all cancers diagnosed in children are leukaemia. Your donation can help Cancer Research UK find better treatments and new ways to prevent the disease in adults and children.
With Cancer Research UK Giving Pages more of the money raised goes towards beating cancer. Aside from the credit and debit card fees, every penny donated goes to Cancer Research UK.
