My story

[p]Hey, thanks for visiting my page. This September I have decided to take on the Sandstone Trail Race again, despite having said I would never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever.......do it again after last year!!! This year I will be raising money for the St. James's Place Charitable Foundation and DKMS. 100% of my fundraising will go to DKMS and St. James's Place Charitable Foundation will match my donations to DKMS at 50%, the other 50% matching will go to The Foundation - they primarily raise money for children who have special needs or are disadvantaged both in the UK and overseas, they also support the Hospice movement, charities in aid of Cancer and helping people of all ages with mental health issues.[/p][p]I am blessed to know Peter McCleave, founder of 10,000 donors, he is looking for a Stem Cell donor to save his life, so far through his appeal 28,066 new donors have been registered and 7 donor matches have been confirmed, Peter is still looking for his donor, this is his story[/p][p]My name is Peter McCleave. 41 years old. Husband to Jenny and dad to two boys; Max, 9 and Seb, 6. Ironman tri-athlete, rugby coach and fan of savoury snacks.[/p][p]?I have been given 7 years to live having been diagnosed with an incurable blood cancer; Myeloma. [/p][p]Myeloma has left my immune system compromised. Stem cells can be used to fix this. Mine don’t work, but yours might. I need someone who is a genetic match to donate some of his or her stem cells, which can be transplanted into my blood.[/p][p]?There are approximately 30 million people on the stem cell register globally. Unfortunately, none are a match for me or thousands of other people like me. In the UK alone, only 2% of the population are signed up to donate stem cells. This is actually great news as it gives so many of us hope that if enough people can be engaged in this campaign, a match is absolutely out there.[/p][p]?It’s simply a numbers game.[/p][p]I started campaigning in 2018 to get 10,000 people, like you, signed up as potential life savers. Such has been the success of 10,000 Donors, the new target is now 100,000.[/p][p]I want to make stem cells as available to us all as Asprin.[/p][p][br][/p][p]**Please donate if you can, every little helps. Also, please consider registering as a donor, YOU could be the match Peter is looking for! - [url=https://www.10000donors.com/]https://www.10000donors.com[/url] [/p][p]Thank you xxx[/p]
