I'm fundraising for my brother Andy
The 29th June.... what a great day! It’s my son Matt’s birthday 🎂 22 already, where did that time go?
8.30 that morning my phone rang, its my brother Andy who lives in Sydney. “i thought I’d ring to wish Matthew a happy birthday” he said, i immediately apologised for not calling the day before which was his eldest son Jack’s 18th. Then his voice changed “I have some not so good news....... I have been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma which is a rare type of blood cancer and it’s incurable” He went on to tell me more but I don’t really remember the rest of the conversation all I remember is before we said goodbye I asked what it was called again so i could write it down. Once off the phone I was straight on the internet... as you do... as I read up on multiple myeloma every word that Andy said was right there in black and white and the tears just didnt stop flowing. Why? Just Why?
Andy is undergoing treatment for his condition which is chemo but also a stem cell transplant at around the time of this ride.
This is the tiniest little thing I can do for you Andy, its going to hurt like hell but nothing, NOTHING compared to what you are going through. Stay strong, weve got this xxx
