Team story

[p]So, with less than 8 weeks until the Great North Run, I’ve made the decision to take part again despite saying (the famous words) I will never do it again. My daughter Shari has decided to join me this time in taking part in the GNR.[/p][p]As some of you will know, my dad suffered from Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). MDS is a group of diseases which affect the blood and bone marrow. In my dad’s case, MDS prevented his red blood cells from reproducing. Due to his age he was unable to receive a bone marrow transplant (BMT) which can sometimes cure the condition, his only option was to receive blood transfusions every 2 weeks. These transfusions allowed my dad to live 9 more fulfilling years with his family, which we will forever be grateful for. [/p][p]Sadly, my dad passed away this year on the 14th June, leaving me heartbroken💔. In his memory I will be taking part in the GNR to raise money for the [url=https://mdspatientsupport.org.uk/]MDS UK Patient Support Group[/url]. Currently MDS UK do not receive any grants or assistance from the government, making contributions to the charity so much more important.[/p][p]Any donations, regardless of the amount, will be greatly appreciated.[/p][p]Thank you for reading[/p]
