My story

[p]Hi, I am running the Birmingham half marathon in October and I have chosen to raise money for Seren’s ALL stars charity as I believe she is the most courageous, selfless person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Please read Seren’s story below and donate as much as you can if you wish to do so. [/p][p]“On 18 December 2018 Seren was diagnosed with accute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Before then she was happy and bright with a kind, caring nature. She still is all of those things but, in addition, she is now facing a 2-3 year battle with cancer.[/p][p]Seren was admitted to hospital on 13 December. We spent Christmas at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and she faced it with strength and courage. Seren now attends appointments at BCH where she undergoes multiple weekly chemotherapy treatments, as well as a range of other drugs and procedures including general anaesthetics, lumbar punctures, bone marrow tests, blood tests, transfusions and antibiotic treatments for infections. Her immune system is weak but they allow us to stay at home between treatments and administer steroids, pain relief and other oral medication at home or through the community nurse team.[/p][p]During her stay in hospital some friends raised £150+ which they donated to Beads of Courage, in Seren's name. This brought her so much joy by paying for 3 sets of beads for other children, that she now wants to fundraise for all the charities that are helping us through this.”[/p]
