When George Lineker was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia at two months old in 1992, it caused national headlines. The son of England footballer Gary Lineker remembers nothing of his treatment but knows that it had a huge emotional impact on his family.
“I don’t recall any of the events but I know it altered my dad’s life in a big way and it was a terrible experience for him,” says George. “I want to do something which can make a difference to other sufferers’ lives.”
George has decided to fundraise for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research this month with a competition challenging others to a series of tasks. We’ll keep you updated on how much he raises!
