The 23rd February 2010 is a very noteworthy date in our house.  Possibly, because it was the day before my youngest sons 4th birthday, but in truth that was the day my oldest son Matthew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.    I'd like to tell you that it was a complete shock, but in my heart of hearts, I already knew. Matthew hadn't been right for a while.  Nothing you could put your finger on and tell the doctor, just not right.  I'd mentioned my concerns to my sister more than...

This year’s London Bikeathon is almost upon us and we cannot wait to meet all our riders on the start line as we cycle together as part of one unstoppable team united by one goal to beat blood cancer. Besides the ride, there’s lots for riders and spectators to look forward to.

For those that like a story to have a happy ending - this one does: Richmond welcomed us with open arms. I certainly wont forget seeing our names written in chalk on the road outside Jacko’s parent’s house, a bountiful, delicious barbecue, the many friends and family that stopped by to cheer us on or the whole keg of real ale we had waiting for us. All of you are wonderful and it was fantastic to see you all. It was a terrific end to a torrid day. I think I’d probably heard the phrase ‘sense of...

Yes, the London Bikeathon 2014 is now only two days away The bike is still in order, albeit slightly creaky, I have two spare inner tubes, a repair kit I still have no idea how to use, and a mini-pump that fits both my tyres and Nicki’s. The nice man in Halfords looked at the latter doubtfully and said “that’s really for emergency use only – it takes forever to fill a tyre with that”. Hm, let’s hope we don’t get any punctures. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to fit in any long distance rides...

After months of training and hard work, the London Bikeathon is now less than 72 hours away. We’re all super excited here at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research HQ and I personally cannot wait to line up alongside you all on Sunday for what will be my first ever Bikeathon. With food, music, a mountain bike display team, a kids playground and a fully stocked bar for a well-earned post-race drink to look forward to in addition to the ride itself, it promises to be a fantastic day for all the family...
