On Sunday 19th March I will be doing a 14 mile walk in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Research Charity.
 
Some may know that I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in September 2010. After a few ups and downs and several courses of Chemo, I had a Bone Marrow Transplant. As no compatible adult donor could be found, stem cells from an umbilical cord were used, and as a result I am still around leading a normal life.
 
I am doing this walk partly to say Thank You for all the advances that have been made in this area, but also to help raise money for further research to help others in the future. There is no doubt if I had fallen ill 10 years earlier, I would not have survived.
 
If anyone would like to sponsor me in this, please go to www.justgiving.com/brianlecornu0317 and if you are a UK tax payer, please tick the Gift Aid box.
 
 
Brian.

Well, completed the course, so no refunds.
 
Left at 11.00, walked through the finish line at 16.00.
 
Might have a small blister on one heel, but far better than last time. The really nice thing about it all, the boss came too, younger than me, and always saying how fit she is, she was far more sore than I was. LOL
 
Anyway, thanks for all the donations, all going to a very good cause. The just giving page will be open still for a couple of weeks, but total of £200 so far, very pleased with that.
Brian.
