My story

[p]I was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome in late 2016 and am currently in a low risk category with regular blood checks and luckily no intervention or drugs. Since many patients are far worse off than me, I am trying to raise more money in 2020 to add to charity funds, increase awareness and support sufferers of MDS. Now more than ever, the MDS needs funding since all charity and running events have been cancelled, so please donate any amount to help the MDS UK Patient Support Group - £2, £5, £10....[/p][p]I had planned several full and half marathons in 2020 including the Fox, Shere, Beachy Head and best of all I had won a ballot place in the Berlin Marathon in September. Berlin has been postponed until 2021 and instead, I ran 2,500km by August and now have a new target of 4,000km by the end of December. I am posting all my results and progress on Strava: [url=https://www.strava.com/athletes/425473]https://www.strava.com/athletes/425473[/url][/p][p][b]MDS[/b] stands for Myelodysplastic Syndromes[b]:[/b] [url=https://mdspatientsupport.org.uk/what-is-mds]mdspatientsupport.org.uk/what-is-mds[/url] [/p]

Your strength of character is clearly shown by your reaction to the situation. Very well done and of course I am sorry to hear you have this. You are also effectively highlighting the condition which is not well known.

Hello Alastair I was not aware that you suffered from MDS. So sorry to hear this. Jeez, I remember the heady days of you trying to persuade me to join the Hash Harriers! Good luck with the Berlin Marathon! Best wishes Paul
