    Stiliyan Petrov - and what I'm going to do about it


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi Chaps,
    I heard the sad news about Stiliyan Petrov, and this brought home very much my personal situation where my little 3 year old boy has AML (a nasty form of Leukeamia) and is about to have a bone marrow transplant with 50:50 chance of survival.

    With this I have decided to do a long bike ride around the island of Zealand in Denmark this Autumn in aid of Leukeamia and Lymphoma Research.

    Leukeamia is a horrendous diesease and anything I can do to prevent future generations getting it is worth while imo. I've already had 2 members of my family pass away with blood cancers, so having my little boy with it is pretty horrible.

    Please support me if you can: http://www.justgiving.com/williamlyne

    Though you can equally donate by mobile phone text (SMS) i.e. Lyne55 £1/ £2/ £5/ £10 TO 70070 to donate. e.g. texting LYNE55 £2 - donates two pounds.

    cheers
    p.s. I hope the mods don't mind me doing this? sorry if it's against the forum rules.

      No offence - but why has Petrov 'brought home' your personal situation?
      I would have thought that was already very much brought home.

      We don't, and it isn't against the rules.

      Good luck. You may end up with a very sore arse, (Insert Brighton based joke here), but it is clearly for a good cause.

      I know, rather than support this poster with his touching story and his admirable fund-raising exploits, let's instead pick on his choice of words when composing what must have been a rather difficult post to write. So he wanted to link his personal situation to something in the news and couldn't quite find the right words to express it, we all know what he meant.

      Yeah I suppose you're right, but sometimes seeing other people just being diagnosed brings the inital feelings of shock flooding back (as opposed the current feeling of just wanting to battle through it). Seeing the poor chap on the tele (with his family) and knowing what he's going to have to go through + knowing what his chances are, makes me feel really sad and more determined to beat this horrible disease. I've seen more than a few children die over the past year, so that's also brought it home.

      Good luck.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      I see, well the best of luck for your youngster, that must be very much the issue for you - so all strength to him and the result of his marrow transplant. I may look into the marrow donation at some point too.

      I asked a civil question in a civil way and got a civil reply, so thanks for your assessment.
      It also serves to get the thread rolling along and some discussion about it, especially in light of the 'p.s.' in the first post.

      Have you donated blood or marrow, or considered it, just out of interest?
