Story

[p]MDS is a cancer that affects the blood cells in the bone marrow and the only definitive cure for it is a bone marrow transplant otherwise known as a stem cell transplant. MDS UK supported my auntie from before she had her stem cell transplant to now nearly five years after and she still finds them a great help and support. MDS UK offered Sammy a friendly and knowledgeable place to go when she had any problems at all. Recovery after transplant varies from person to person and Sammy has had a tough five years with infections and many hospital stays, low moods, intense fatigue and other problems but with the help and support from Sophie and others at MDS UK she never felt alone. She knew that she could ask them anything at anytime or just phone to talk to someone who understood her issues. I know that Sammy finds this invaluable and I want to do this run to show how grateful we are for MDS UK being there. It is a small charity with a big heart and I know Sammy would not have been so resilient without them by her side for the last decade. Thankyou to Sophie and all the dedicated team who do a fantastic job.[/p]
