On Sunday October 17th Vanessa Collu run The Cabbage Patch and now she is still raising money for MDS UK!
Vanessa says in her JustGiving Page:
During this year's grim winter lockdown Caitlin Limmer's live zoom runs kept me fit and sane. Now that restrictions have eased it's been a pleasure to join her running club, the Bearcats, and encouraged by them I have signed up to my longest run to date, a ten miler!
As it affects some members directly, the MDS charity is very close to the Bearcats heart. It supports people who have this form of blood cancer, and needs all the publicity and support it can get. I will be wearing an MDS t shirt on the day, but would love to also contribute some funds. If you can spare a donation, however small, I would be very grateful.
Thank you so much for your support, Vanessa!
We are so grateful to you for raising important funds and awareness of MDS.
You are making a difference. All the money we get goes to assist patients and families with information, support and advice.
An hour on the helpline to newly diagnosed patients makes an immense difference to most patients.
Our online patient meetings are the next step – to help patients cope emotionally and make more sense of the medical journey they are on.
Our website and newsletter help with up-to-date information which is often needed, in particular now, in the midst of the covid 19 pandemic.
All requires time and funds.
With your help – we can help.
Many thanks from the MDS UK Team
