I can't believe in 2 months time I will be taking part in my first marathon of the year. Sometimes I question myself to why i do these things, am i stupid putting myself through the training, putting my body through the pain haha but then I remember everything @ashleygs123 went through after his diagnosis of Lymphoma. We spent 2 years in and out of hospitals, our weekends were sat in isolation fighting infections, going through week long chemotherapy regimes knowing that the after affects were often worse than the treatment itself. Daily blood transfusions, Constantly on an emotional rollercoaster drowning in bad news constantly and having to come out those consultation rooms with a brave face. Watching someone you love fighting so hard with so much courage but knowing the possibilities of remission are slipping away is 100x worse than running 26 miles. If Ashley had reached remission he had an 80% chance of the cancer coming back. With a stem cell transplant this figure was dramatically reduced to 25% @anthonynolancharity give hope and a chance of life after cancer. And to just give one person that chance - I'd happily run a marathon every day of the year if I had too! If anyone else would like to help me raise money I'd really appreciate it!

Even though our little prince was born with a heart condition, we signed up for his umbilical cord to go to the Anthony Nolan Trust to help with stem cell research & cancer treatment. People should not have to suffer with cancer, Riley never got to meet his Grandad as he passed away just 2 months before he was born. Our little man was given this vest the day he was born, still just fits him & been proud to let him wear it 💜 5 months old today. #cancer #itsnotok #kickcancerintheass #anthonynolantrust #anthonynolan

The #10yearchallenge had me looking at photos with my lovely friend Amy, who very sadly is no longer with us after a very short battle with cancer. So the 10 year challenge for me isn’t looking at how much I’ve aged or how cringey my photos were from 10 years ago (they really are) but rather about not taking our time for granted and celebrating getting older. This year I am running the marathon in loving memory of Amy. If you can spare anything to sponsor us & the Anthony Nolan charity, we would really appreciate it. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/adam-and-lyds?utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_content=Adam-and-Lyds&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_source=Sharethis&utm_term=w4N27W6p7 #thelondonmarathon #anthonynolan #10yearchallenge #celebratelife

So who here is on a blood stem cell donor register? If you're not already then what are you waiting for? It is such a simple and selfless thing to do and you, yes you, could be the answer to someones prayers. This young man here is a friend of my little cousins, but it could quite easily have been my cousin or even yours for that matter. If it was yours then would you not want everyone to do this one little swab that could be that step closer to helping him get his life back? So here's the deal, you click on the link below and register, they send you a swab kit, you do the swab, you post it back, they put you on the register, if ever you come up as a match they contact you and ask you to help. It is rare to find matching donors, so you may never be called upon at all. There is a 4-5% chance of being someone's match in the next 10 years. If you're never a match then atleast you tried and you're still a hero, right?! For many people with a blood cancer or blood disorder a donation from a matching blood stem cell donor is their best chance of survival. The process is similar to giving blood only they collect stem cells not blood. And don't worry you're not going to run out and end up at risk yourself because your blood stem cells will completely replenish themselves within 2-4 weeks of the collection. Even though there are over 27 million people on the worldwide register, this isn’t enough. Many people in the UK still can't find a suitable matching donor. So please don't hesitate to do this it really could save someone's life and save their loved ones having to say goodbye to them forever. https://www.dkms.org.uk/en/register-now #swab4harj #stemcelldonor #dkms #anthonynolan

Bye hair 👋🏻 thank you @vipbeautyrooms ♥️ #littleprincesstrust #anthonynolan #anthonynolantrust

Can't think of a better way to finish off my #mud4marrow challenge than by getting to donate stem cells through @anthonynolancharity for the second time. Feeling very privileged and lucky as it's pretty rare to be a match for one person, and extremely rare to be a match for 2 separate people. All the money I've been raising this year goes directly to Anthony Nolan and specifically to grow their register so they can match patients with various forms of blood cancer from all over the world with donors. My fundraising total thanks to you all is currently sitting at £900/£1000 and going for the final push. Hopefully this post puts in perspective just how much difference a few pounds can make. Donation link is in my profile, and as usual if you are eligible please sign-up for the register at www.anthonynolancharity.org as you can see from the pic its really not painful. #mud4marrow #charity #anthonynolan #bloodcancer #endbloodcancernow #peripheralbloodstemcell #donation #fundraising #beamatchsavealife

He urgently needs a lifesaving stem cell transplant, but there isn’t a suitable match among the people who have already volunteered to donate by joining the stem cell register. If you’re over 16, please consider signing up to the stem cell register and giving Harri a chance. Your stem cells could be Harri’s perfect match, and they may be his only match. Donating stem cells is as simple as giving blood. Please share this post with as many people as you can.

Just finished doing my cheeck swab for the Anthony Nolan register so hopefully one day I might be able to help someone with blood cancer. Everyone should do it as it is so quick and easy and could save lives! Or alternatively we are still collecting sonsors for our recent challenge Mactuff. (We are so close to £900!!) https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thomas-dixon14?utm_campaign=pfp-share&utm_content=Thomas-Dixon14&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_source=Facebook&utm_term=J9eZwAbmM

Little bit late uploading but that's the last race of my #mud4marrow challenge complete. Exactly 365 days, 126km+ of obstacle courses, a Spartan trifecta and my first two half marathons but with obstacles in the way. Finished with the 22k MacTuff a year after the 15k nearly broke me, planned on doing the extra 7k in the same time but I'll settle for an extra 30min coming in at 3h36m. Poignant that just a week later I'm traveling to London tomorrow to donate stem cells for the second time through @anthonynolancharity So as usual, I'm asking if anyone could spare anything at all the donation link is in my profile and would be so grateful. If it wasn't for kind donations like those I've revieved already I wouldn't have been able to donate twice. So far thanks to you all I've raised £835 (excluding gift aid) which is enough to add 20 potential life saving donors to the register and if I reach my target of £1000 that will bring it up to 25. Also please consider signing up to join the Anthony Nolan register. There are lots of misconceptions regarding donating stem cell / bone marrow donation. I can only speak from personal experience with PBSC (Peripheral Blood Stem Cell) collection (used in the vast majority of cases), but you receive 4 days of easy injections, I'm on day 3 atm and the only side effects are feeling a little run down, a mild headache and a little lower back pain (last time I was virtually symptomless). The procedure lasts around 6 hours with a needle in each arm, and in all honesty is more boring than uncomfortable. I've heard from others who donated that how painful marrow donation is is completely blown out of proportion, but if that puts you off you can opt out of bone marrow donation. So if you haven't already get on www.anthonynolan.org and request an at home swap kit. #mactuff #mactuff2019 #mud4marrow #ocr #obstaclecourseracing #anthonynolan #charity #pbsc #peripheralbloodstemcell #fundraising #fitness #mud #mudrun #spartan #spartantrifecta #roughrunner #toughmudder #lochnessbeastrace #endbloodcancernow #bloodcancer #roadto22kwithobstaclesintheway #training #running #trailrunning #therunnerinfrontiscuringbloodcancer #beamatchsavealife

Thought I had the worst week until I came home to beer and my Anthony Nolan donor card. Officially on the stem cell donor register, puts things in to perspective, as things could be a lot worse. A little short term discomfort to potentially save a life is nothing in the grand scheme of things #lifesaverready #anthonynolan #friday

There's nothing I love more than a filling my tummy with good old comfort food after a day of trying to control my mind. - I've not been to this amazing hopsital for over a year now for reasons I'll explain over time, but today was the day I went. I went to support my husband, in addition to help my heart heal. - I really struggle with admitting I'm still healing as it was 5 years from diagnosis, but if I'm totally honest I have done everything in my power to not deal with it and now I am mentally and physically exhausted. - Whilst Writing this its making me want to delete everything I've written and tell you a funny story... (my first go to defence mechanism). - I better post this before I delete... - #anthonynolan #healing #thankful #healingwife #healingheart #lifeaftertransplant #transplant #mamatothree #mama #mummy #beefstew #learningtoheal #comfortfood #slimmingworld

'I signed up to the register around two years ago. My wife Caitlin told me about it. I'm not proud of saying it but I hadn't heard of the charity before then! • 'When I got the call I was surprised at first I also felt very excited and immediately wanted to help. • 'I donated in December last year. The donation day was a day I won't forget. I met so many lovely people at the hospital including doctors, nurses and patients at various stages of treatment. I constantly think about the recipient, they're in my thoughts every day. • 'I would tell any one to join the register. You could help save a life. Its a feeling I can't describe!!' • Neil, stem cell donor • #lifesaver #anthonynolan #stemcells #bloodcancer

Signed up to the #anthonynolan register! #stemcells #donor #lifesaverready Sign up online. They send out a simple cheek swab kit in the post that you then send back, and you’re on! Simple! Your donor card will then be sent out and you’re ready and waiting to donate ❤️

This beautiful little boy is called Harri. He’s 6 months old, and is desperately ill with Leukaemia. He urgently needs a lifesaving stem cell transplant, but there isn’t a suitable match among the people who have already volunteered to donate by joining the stem cell register. If you’re over 16, please consider signing up to the stem cell register and giving Harri a chance. Your stem cells could be Harri’s perfect match, and they may be his only match. Donating stem cells is as simple as giving blood. Please share this post with as many people as you can. For more information, and to sign up to the stem cell register with either @anthonynolancharity if you’re 16-30, or @dkms_uk if you’re 17-55. #saveharristickler #anthonynolan #searchfortheheroinsideyourcells #dosomethingamazing #savealife #wecanbeheros #kindness #leukaemia #stemcells #stemcelltransplants #amazingteenagers #everydayhero #givehope #howtosavealife

6-month-old Harri and his family spent the Christmas holidays in hospital in Cardiff, where he's been receiving treatment following his diagnosis with a rare form of leukaemia. • Unfortunately a match still hasn't been found for Harri, and he urgently needs a stem cell transplant. • Please keep sharing little Harri's story. • Sign up to join the stem cell register and give hope to families like Harri’s 💚 👉Link in bio • #saveharristickler #anthonynolan #stemcells #bloodcancer

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service visited Senior V pupils to discuss the Anthony Nolan Register, which aims to find a genetic match for patients with blood cancer or a blood disorder so that they can receive a lifesaving stem cell transplant. The pupils received a presentation on the process and now have time to discuss this with their families and decide if they wish to register next week. For further information visit www.anthonynolan.org/sfrs or watch a brief video on the Anthony Nolan YouTube channel. . . #stcolumbasschool #anthonynolan #anthonynolanregister #makeadifference

Another day another run. Went to the gym after with the intention of doing 20 mins of light weights but the gym was absolutely rammo so I opted for the rest of the night off!! #runner #marathontraining #parismarathon2019 Haven't mentioned it for a while but I'm doing the marathon (and another half) in aid of #anthonynolan Please check out my bio for my JustGiving link and/or look them up online! #juststrongclothing #juststrong #juststrongambassador @bejuststrong #fitness

Last year I registered as an organ donor. And registered my children too. I also gave blood for the first time. This year I've registered with Anthony Nolan trust. If you don't know about it search them on Google. If your a match for someone you could save their life. #donor #anthonynolantrust #anthonynolan #giving #lifesaverready

'Happy 3rd birthday you beautiful, wonderful wild mini humans 👧🏼💕👧🏼 I am truly blessed (and very tired!) being your mummy 💜 #3today' • @jojo_sellars - Pixie-Rose and Presley-Pearl's mum. • Johanna, from Bury, whose youngest twin daughters were both diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, is encouraging more people to sign up to the stem cell register. • Pixie-Rose had her transplant in October and this week is celebrating her birthday with her twin sister Presley-Pearl. • We’re all wishing Pixie-Rose and Presley-Pearl a very happy birthday 🎂🎂🎂 • #pixiesprogress #pixiepower #anthonynolan #stemcells
