Story

[p][b]In January 2011, our daughter Scarlett, then 6 years old, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia ALL.[/b][/p][p]ALL is the most common form of childhood cancer, affecting somewhere in the region of 500 children in the UK each year. Treatment lasts an extremely long time - two years for girls and three for boys. Whilst the prognosis is generally good, around 20% of those children initially treated will go on to relapse.[/p][p]Sadly, this is what has happened to Scarlett. She had been off treatment for just less than 6 months, when, in September 2013 we were devastated to find out that her cancer had returned.[/p][p]Relapsed ALL is harder to treat than the initial disease, and the treatments much harsher. She has since undergone a grueling second round of treatment. From September 2013 until January 2014, Scarlett stayed at hospital, enduring relentless rounds of chemotherapy, steroids and radiotherapy. Throughout December, she barely came home at all, just managing Christmas Day at home before having to be rushed back to hospital at 9pm with a treatment related infection.[/p][p]Having a child with cancer has a devastating impact, both for the child and their family. Scarlett, now 10 years old, has already been having cancer treatment for almost a third of her life. And she will now have to continue treatment for a further year, making a total of 5 long years of chemotherapy.[/p][p]Throughout this time, we have been tirelessly supported by many people. The staff of the pediatric oncology ward have all been fantastic, as have representatives from many of the children&rsquos cancer charities. But the real stars and those that have kept us going through many difficult times are friends and family. From meals, to company in hospital, to offering playdates and holidays for Scarlett&rsquos brother and sister, everyone has pulled together to offer kindness and support in unending amounts.[/p][p]In 2012, Bryony a complete non-runner took up the challenge to run the London marathon, in support of a Childrens Cancer Charity, setting the bar by raising an incredible &pound25,000.Following this, in 2014 we set up a group called Scarletts Dragons, which supports and raises money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. The group seemed to really capture peoples imagination and the fundraising events in 2014 were as diverse as the supporters organizing them - a fun-day, a children triathlon, a mud run, a mountain climb, a Christmas single, a harp concert..... but most notably, 22 guys got together to complete the Blenheim Triathlon, raising between them in excess of &pound122,000[/p][p]It was such a great day, that we are going to do it all again &ndash but this time not with 22 athletes, but with 200! For the first time ever at Blenheim, a whole wave decked out in turquoise and pink will be dedicated to one person - a very special little girl called Scarlett.[/p][p]We are aiming high with our fundraising, as this is a cause which is so close to our hearts. If we can help reach a day when no other family has to go through the pain of having their child diagnosed with leukaemia, then the pain of our training which at times is quite considerable will be well worthwhile.[/p][p]Please dig deep and support us in whatever way you can.[/p][p]Many thanks[/p][p][b]Dan and Bryony[/b][/p]
