​Lucie's Story

"On March 3rd I run the Cambridge Half Marathon in memory of my grandad and one of my closest friends, Jamie Gardiner, both of whom sadly passed away in 2017.

I’m raising money for two charities: MDS UK Patient Support Group and Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.

My grandad suffered from MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndromes), which comprises a group of malignant blood disorders in which the bone marrow fails to produce healthy blood cells. All types of blood cells can be affected, causing a range of symptoms. MDS UK Patient Support Group is a small charity which seeks to raise awareness of MDS, offers invaluable support and information to patients and families and campaigns to increase the quality of life and make treatments available to those affected by MDS. For more information about MDS and the great work MDS UK Patient Support Group do, take a look at: https://mdspatientsupport.org.uk"

We are incredibly grateful to Lucy and all their friends and sponsors for their support. Thanks to them we are able to support MDS Patients and their loved ones at those critical moments when anxiety strikes.

We provide a 1-2-1 helpline opened 5 days a week, organise local meetings and maintain an updated website and Facebook Group, among other activities. Thanks for making this possible.
