Team story

[p]In June, it was a cough. By August, they thought it was Pneumonia. Then on 5th October 2016, my girlfriend Emma and I got the drastically life changing news that she had developed Non-Hogkins Lymphoma, a form of blood cancer. She is a young, fit, healthy non smoker. It was nothing she had done, nothing genetic, just horrible rotten luck.[/p][p]Since that day, she has had to deal with 10 rounds of some of the most aggressive Chemotherapy that scientists have developed, an extremely complex stem cell transplant involving weeks in isolation, weeks of radiotherapy, daily self injections and far too many days/nights in hospital to count. Needless to say, this has resulted in physical and mental exhaustion in quantities that aren't possible to imagine.[/p][p]Emma has dealt with it all with courage, grace and bravery, in a way that words won't do justice. In recent months the condition has improved and earlier this month, 15 months on, we got the amazing news that there is no evidence of any active Lymphoma left. The team at the Western General in Edinburgh, from the lead consultant to the domestic staff, have been nothing short of unbelievable. (We are extremely lucky in this country to have the NHS and shouldn't forget it!) [/p][p]Bloodwise is a wonderful charity that funds research into life saving blood cancer treatments, as well as providing support to patients and their loved ones. Their incredible work has saved Emma and thousands of others.[/p][p]Master Halliday and I have been fortunate enough to get spaces to take on the London Marathon as part of Team Bloodwise on 22nd April. Chisholm will smash the Stirling Marathon the following weekend. We hope that as a team we can raise lots of money from as many kind donors as we can pester.[/p][p]Any donations, big or small, would be massively appreciated.[/p]
