Hi, my name's Daisy,


When I was 2 and a half years old I was really sick. I lost all my hair and couldn't eat for 9 months. But my mum says that I'm better now thanks to amazing cyclists like you helping blood cancer research.

And because you're going to help other kids like me, I'm going to help you get through Prudential RideLondon! Maybe people are asking you why it's important to sponsor you? Well here are the reasons:
 


My mum and dad were really worried about me when I was sick:
 

"Our daughter endured two and a half years – half her life – on high-dose chemotherapy and steroids. She had to be isolated countless times because her immune system was too weak to mix with friends and family. But despite all of this, she never once complained, and kept her beautiful smile on her face throughout. Although it’s been harrowing, she’s one of the lucky ones. Without the funds for research and new trials for blood cancer patients, I know she wouldn’t have survived."  

Emily, Daisy's Mum



But you're doing something amazing, helping us beat blood cancer! Here are my tips to make sure you have a great ride, and raise as much as you can to help other people with blood cancer:
