Raising money for blood cancer research

“For the world is in a bad state, but everything will become still worse unless each of us does his best.” – Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

Cancer is not one of those things healthy people think about, unless you have a close friend or relative who’s been diagnosed. I’m lucky to have healthy friends & family, but that’s not the case for the nearly 18 million people who were diagnosed with cancer last year. 

Over the past few months, I’ve been training for my first ever triathlon, to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, a charity that offers patient support and research to blood cancer patients. Blood cancer accounts for nearly 10% of all diagnostics, and it’s the most prevalent type of cancer in kids. That’s very sad, and I’m trying to raise a little bit of money for LLR. 

Please go here to donate – any support will be much appreciated. I’m doing the Blenheim triathlon and I’ll do my best to get past the finish line.
