My Message

On the evening of Saturday 10 October, I am taking part in Light the Night. In conjunction with Light the Night, we will be having 'Beers for Bruce' in honor of my brave Dad who fought the good fight. We encourage you to have a 'Beer for Bruce' on Saturday 10th October, no matter where you are. Whilst sadly we can't all be together this year; my family are all sharing this in the hope that if you can’t donate that you have a beer to remember Dad and raise awareness of Blood cancer. We could write a book about Dads journey, but he would be terribly embarrassed so in short: Dad was diagnosed in 2010 and fought battle after battle. Over the course of his journey, he also endured multiple hip operations, back surgery, neck surgery and heart surgery. But still never did he complain; he fought with such courage and dignity. Dad never wanted to give up the fight, and when they would say he couldn't, he would!!! He was brave beyond belief, and has left us so shattered, but yet so proud. So whilst our hearts are broken, a wise man told me that the greatest gift is to share stories of him and about him. So please cheers to Bruce! Donations also transform fear into hope in miraculous, life-changing ways by furthering the work of brilliant research scientists. This research is saving lives right now as it continues to discover faster diagnostics and even better treatments for people with blood cancer. Please help me reach my goal and sponsor me to Light the Night.
