A Day to Remember

Well it IsTuesday 2nd December, my second to last day with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research in Edinburgh. It has been a very quick 20 week secondment and I have enjoyed every minute.

My journey began back in July when I was given the challenge of organising this year's charity walk.

The Edinburgh Winter Walk 2014 took place on Sunday 2nd November 2014 with nearly 100 walkers. Vogrie Country Park was a lovely venue and it was a beautiful sunny morning. I could not have asked for better weather. So far we have raised nearly £6500 which is amazing. Hopefully after the Gift Wrapping event I have organised for this Thursday we will raise in excess of this.

I would like to thank everyone for taking part and for all the support from my family and friends who have supported me along the way and for making it a Day to Remember.

It has also been an emotional journey for me sharing my story and hearing so many happy and sad ones. I have  met some lovely people and will definitely stay in touch and help.

Lastly I wish to Thank  Maddy, Kirsty and Emma for their help and support making my stay with them something I will never forget.

LOVELY STORY AND FULL OF HOPE FOR ANYONE WHO'S WENT THROUGH AN EXPERIENCE LIKE THIS. SHARING GIVES US THE STRENGTH TO GO ON.

Emma it really is us that should be thanking you for all your wonderful hard work and commitment to helping us beat blood cancer. As a charity we're so lucky to have supporters like you willing to go that extra mile to help make a difference to the lives of blood cancer patients and without you we wouldn't be able to fund any of our research.

Good luck with the gift wrapping session event and all the best in the future - you're an inspiration to all blood cancer patients.

Couldn't agree more Ed. Stories like Emma's are inspirational to those currently going through blood cancer and their families as they provide hope and show what can be achieved. I hope you're well and wish you all the best in the future.
