Profile for Roger Marris
With no warning of impending poor health, at the end of 2004, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of incurable NHL that has no known cause - Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (one of many illnesses grouped under the general term – cancer; Lymphoma is known as lymphatic cancer).
To improve the chances of people in the future, who find themselves in a similar position, I am trying to raise £10,000+ to be split between:
· The Leukaemia Research Foundation (which researches causes and future treatments for the blood cancers - Leukaemia, Hodgkins and Non- Hodgkins Lymphomas and Myeloma).
· The Anthony Nolan Trust (which saves lives in the UK & around the world by registering stem cell donors and matching them by working through other similar overseas organisations to individuals here and elsewhere suffering from blood cancers).
