Knowing the whole family and Ollie since his first haircut. Through the regular updates both good and bad from hospitals. l feel like we have all been on his journey. Supporting Terry and Jimmy's efforts for the charities that have helped Ollie's journey is the least l can do. Great to see Ollie and give his new hair growth a trim the other day. xxx

Our story

Ollie was diagnosed with Leukaemia (AML) in May 2022, at the age of 5. Since then he has been on a very difficult journey. Ollie has had a complicated recovery following his bone marrow transplant. Requiring a prolonged admission at The Royal Marsden Hospital and also an extensive stay in Paediatric Intensive Care at St Georges Hospital.

Thankfully we have been helped along the way by some terrific charities. Without these charities, I don’t know how many families would cope as childhood cancer destroys all aspects of family life. To help repay these charities for their tremendous support, I and two other R.E.M.E veterans have signed up to complete the Nijmegen 4-day Marches 2023 to raise money, so that these charities can continue their tremendous support for others.

Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Young Lives vs Cancer, Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) and EMMA'S BUBBLE TRUST.

Our updates

After a beer or two to celebrate our completion of the Nijmegen Marches, we have decided to leave the donation site running for another month at least. There are so many that have, if not actually pledged. Certainly implied that they wish to donate to our causes. So by keeping the give as you live page open it will give those people the ability to keep to their word. The physical challenge may now have been completed, but now starts the serious challenge of reaching our target.

There are so many people that have helped us along the way that we need to thank, over and above all that have already donated. That will be done in our final update.

Yesterdays update can only come this morning, as we needed to firstly know how one of the team was faring after two grueling days. Unfortunately Ian isn't able to start day three as the last two days have taken there toll. It was a valiant effort. Onwards and upwards, Jimmy and l will be starting day three on what is known as the seven hills of Groesbeek'.
