Team story

[p]Welcome to Team Cashew and Ginger! We are both NUTS! Otherwise known as Moni and Caitlin.[/p][p]On July 29th we are cycling The Prudential Ride 100 miler on a TANDEM that has been kindly lent to us, with Ginger as the driver and Cashew dangling her little legs at the back![/p][p]Our aim is to raise MASSIVE AWARENESS OF MYELODISPLASTIC SYNDROME and also money for MDS UK Patients Support Group based at Kings Hospital in London.[/p][p]Myelodisplastic Syndrome is a blood cancer close to Caitlin's heart and last year she is proudly asked to be their Patron.[/p][p]“MDS is a rare blood cancer. On average, there are 3000 people each year in the UK who get this dreadful diagnosis.[/p][p]MDS patients often deal with overwhelming fatigue, a propensity to bruise and bleed easily, frequent infections (some life threatening in themselves) and in higher risk cases it can develop into aggressive leukaemia’s which are frequently fatal. THERE IS NO CURE FOR MDS – other than a bone transplant, and even then it is only for a small number of viable patients. Of the current treatments most simply alleviate symptoms (blood and platelet transfusions) or slow down the disease’s progression.[/p][p]We have been training really hard at DIGME in Richmond, a fantastic, exciting, spinning studio who have supported us in every way, we really are both VERY INEXPERIENCED cyclists, but we are MENTALLY DETERMINED to get through this challenge. We are LOVING (nearly every minute of) the training as people honk their cars, wave and smile whenever they see us which is such a huge boost. We also get great shouts of encouragement from many others cyclists who ... zooooom past us! Danieli ice cream shop in Richmond have also been fuelling us with their fantastic ice cream when we get over heated on our long cycles! The runners at The Bearcat Running Club and so many friends have been offering us so much help too, learning how to change tyres, suggesting routes, offering to take us out cycling, we really are so incredibly grateful for all that everyone is doing for us.[/p][p]Anything you can do to support us, whether it be share this post, help us make a noise by raising awareness, coming and supporting us on the day would be hugely appreciated.[/p][p]Thank you SO much.[/p]
