My story

[p] I am 55 yrs old this year and am running the 2019 London Marathon to challenge myself and more importantly to raise money for Neuroblastoma UK. Neuroblastoma is a rare cancer which only affects children. You may not have heard of this cancer but will have no doubt seen little football fan Bradley Lowery's fight against Neuroblastoma in the media. Bradley captured the hearts of many and in particular professional footballer Jermaine Defoe. Sadly despite a long and brave battle little Bradley died last year at the age of six. [/p][p]Our daughter Ashleigh also had Neuroblastoma when she was only 2yrs old in 1999. The cancer had spread from the primary tumour in the adrenal gland into the bone marrow in her pelvis and legs. We were told to expect the worse as at that time only around 20% of children survived stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Ashleigh endured months of high dose chemotherapy and had major surgery to remove the primary tumour. Unfortunately her left kidney had to be removed as the tumour had wrapped around it. Following stem cell rescue and mega dose chemotherapy Ashleigh contracted pneumonia and spent two weeks in intensive care on a ventilator. Despite everything, Ashleigh survived and is now a beautiful 21 year old. [/p][p][b][u]All[/u][/b] money raised by Neuroblastoma UK goes into research to try and develop better treatments and hopefully one day find a cure for this devastating childhood cancer. [/p][p]Thank you for reading this story and for donating. [/p][p] Trev [/p][p] [/p]
