Team story

[p][span=font-weight: normal;]Thanks for visiting! This August I'm [/span][span=font-weight: normal;]cycling over 1000 miles (1600km)[/span][span=font-weight: normal;] from the far southwest to the far northeast of the UK.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-weight: normal;][b]I'm undertaking this (admittedly insane) ride to support my mom in her battle with stage 4 [/b][/span][span=font-weight: normal;][b]mantle cell lymphoma.[/b][/span][/p][p][span=font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.399999618530273px;][lt]span style="color: #3366ff;"[gt]100% of donations go to mantle cell lymphoma research![/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=font-weight: normal;][b]Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) [/b]is a rare and aggressive cancer. There's no cure (YET!) and no concensus around how to best treat it. There are so many things we just don't know yet about MCL.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-weight: normal;]Anyone who's watched a loved one battle a disease knows the emotions. Love, sadness, frustration, guilt... but most of all, [i]helplessness.[/i] So I'm channeling this into something positive - doing something totally crazy to help find a cure. [lt]br /[gt] [/span][/p][p][span=font-weight: normal;]My mom's finished 8 sessions of an aggressive chemo regime. From here we can choose a clinical trial or a stem cell transplant. [lt]br /[gt][/span][/p][p][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-weight: normal;][b]There's  no doubt in my mind that my mom will keep fighting until the day that a cure comes walking into our lives. We just need your help to speed it along a little... [lt]br /[gt] [/b][/span][/p][p][span=font-weight: normal;]The Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Foundation is currently conducting 2 MCL clinical trials. Your donations will go to these. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][span=font-weight: normal;][b]Please help me support my mom as she battles MCL by sponsoring me on my challenge. Every penny counts![/b][/span][/p][p][span=color: #339966;][lt]span style="font-weight: normal;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #3366ff;"[gt]'We want every single person diagnosed with a blood cancer to survive and go on to live their life to the full; free from fear of relapse and free from the harsh side effects of treatments. With every pound you raise to support us, you're part of this mission.'[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p]And in the meantime... have a look at my blog! [/p][p][url=http://lejog-leblog-2014.blogspot.co.uk/]LE-JoG Le Blog: A battle, a challenge, a girl and a bike. [/url] [/p]
