We’re a community dedicated to beating blood cancer. Here are just a few of us.
We’re community fundraisers like Nicole Harris. Nicole organised the first Bromsgrove fun run seven weeks after her son Mark was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1988. The race was held six weeks after he sadly died. Almost 30 years later, in 2017, the branch Nicole started celebrated raising £1million. And they’re still going.
We’re nurses like Darren Simpson. As a member of our Nurses Network Steering Committee, Darren helps make sure nurses across the UK can learn from each other, helping them to deliver the best possible care.
We’re researchers like Professor Peter Hillmen. Peter is one of 300 researchers being funded by Blood Cancer UK to find the next breakthrough.
We’re cyclists like Bharat Miangar. Bharat is one of more than 2,000 people who take on challenge events for Blood Cancer UK. Since losing his wife to leukaemia, he has cycled from London to Paris and trekked the Great Wall of China.
We’re Ambassadors like Lisa Griffiths. Lisa got involved with Blood Cancer UK after her son, Hugo, was diagnosed with leukaemia. Hugo was later the face of an advertising campaign, and Lisa has run the London Marathon for us and volunteers in our London office.
