My story

[p]Please help me in raising money for such a great charities as [url=https://bloodwise.org.uk/]Blodwise[/url], [url=http://www.cureleukaemia.co.uk/]CureLeukaemia [/url]and [url=https://www.firefighterscharity.org.uk/how-we-help/]Firefighters Charity[/url]. My colleagues fiancee and a fellow firefighter has a leukaemia and I heard how much this has affected her and all those around her. I wanted to do something to help raise money towards charities who help those sufferning from this type of cancer.[/p][p]Leukaemia is a type of [url=https://bloodwise.org.uk/info-support/blood-cancer]blood cancer[/url] that affects blood cells, usually [url=https://bloodwise.org.uk/info-support/blood-cancer/what#node-5318]white blood cells[/url], and [url=https://bloodwise.org.uk/info-support/blood-cancer/what#node-19958]bone marrow[/url]. White blood cells are an important part of your [url=https://bloodwise.org.uk/info-support/blood-cancer/what#node-5331]immune system[/url] that fight infection, and bone marrow is where blood cells like these are made. Visit charity web pages to find out more.[/p][p]To increase the challenge I will be running this half marathon in full firefighting kit ( apart from running shoes) and ''casualty'' on my shoulders weighing between 20 - 30 kg.[/p][p]All your donations are appreciated. Thank you[/p]
