Eileen French after finishing the Magna Carta Half Marathon
Eileen sent us this photo after her amazing achievement. She said to us:
I've done it. I completed my first Half Marathon on what would have been John's 61st Birthday.
Due to the rapid progression of John's MDS he was not in contact with this support group. But I know he would have been so thrilled and proud with the donations received from his family and friends, helping to support MDS patients today.
We are deeply moved and grateful to Eileen. What a great tribute to her husband John. He would have been VERY proud.
