It is now 4 months since I ran my second London Marathon and I am training for the Great North Run next month to raise more funds. I wrote about this in my book. I hope you will get a copy; Remember proceeds will support this amazing charity and at the end of it I guarantee you will understand blood cancer better. It has been described as a resource for all patients and their families. I hope to have further news of other resources I will produce to help patients later this year. Watch this space!

A recent review, on the US version of Amazon, said: “What a joyful and fascinating story this book was. This book is, at times, funny, heartfelt, deeply informative and chock full of fascinating twists and turns- like a great trail run through the woods and beautiful fields of life and living. The book catches and grabs you, from the fun book cover to David’s life story, to deep dives into the history of leukemia, the beginnings of mass long distance running events and many other informative turns along the way…………… What I took away from this book was a profound and deep appreciation for life and living, to smile and laugh along the way, and a deep connection with the author’s own experience of cancer……Get this book, and just know, you’ll want to read and read again. It’s a page turner and a joy to experience.”. Please remember to also leave a review as it will help sales and therefore the charity. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1739382404
Proceeds from the book are being donated to my justgiving page, which also is used from my London Marathon and GNR fundraising. So far, I’ve raised over £1,400 but still need to reach my target of £2,300. I will keep going until my target is reached! (it is my ‘3rd marathon’; so tough, yet so rewarding.

THANK YOU to everyone who has already supported the book and my fundraising, I love you all, and will keep trying to ‘give back’ as a mark of my gratitude and my continuing celebration of surviving this dreadful disease.
