Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the MDS UK Patient support group.[/p][p]Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) is a malfunction of the bone marrow in producing the correct quantity and quality of blood cells.  Many people, newly diagnosed with MDS, have not heard of this disorder before. Some, diagnosed early, do not even feel unwell.  [/p][p]My lovely brother-in-law, Glyn Jones, has recently been diagnosed with MDS and is now going through a journey of constant hospital visits, weekly blood transfusions, exhaustion, pain, breathlessness and of course the hope of finding a suitable stem cell donor.  He is a lovely, lovely man and him and my sister are so brave and fabulous.  As are my friends that have joined this team, supporting me in raising awareness and funds for this amazing, but little known charity.[/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Wish us luck!![/p][p]Cate and team x[/p]
