When Sarah was diagnosed in 2008 with Blood Cancer our Lives stood still. We seemed to be watching from a self contained void whilst life carried on around us with the occasional pitying look and commiserating nod in our direction. It took us a while to realise that we didn't have to be waiting for help but instead we could get out there and fight for it ourselves. Like every life limiting illness, Cancer affects everything in your world - Your Family, Your Friends, Your Finances....Sarah has been fighting ever since - DKMS says that Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. For many, a simple blood stem cell donation is their last and best hope.Signing up as a potential blood stem cell donor with DKMS means you will be on standby to save a life. You could be the last chance someone is waiting for. Sign up. Swab. Save a Life.
Remember DKMS UK is very close to our hearts as unless the clinical trial that she has been part of since 2017 works then Sarah is likely to need StemCell in the future.
Every Year we try to fund raise for an important Blood Cancer Charity to give something back - who knows what or when we will need support from these wonderful Charities in the future - Life is full of surprises and not all of them are good!!
So in October 2015 we hosted a fundraising Halloween Ball then in June 2016 we had our first Black Tie affair!! followed in May 2017 when we hosted our Spring Ball on board a Thames Cruiser sailing from Canary Wharf when we travelled up the River Thames to Fulham Palace and returned. We laughed danced ate and drank and we think its fair to say everybody had a great time!!
