George Jackson (13) - will join Beefy on Saturday 14 April in Leeds
George was just 10 years old when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in December 2009. George is doing well after receiving a bone marrow transplant and is now back at school.
Mum Caroline says: “We are all just thrilled to bits that George has been chosen to be Beefy’s local hero for Leeds, it feels like such a privilege. It is great to be giving something back to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research – raising money for this charity really does save lives. I know a lot of progress has been made in terms of treatments and cures but children and adults are still dying.”
