I had never heard of Aplastic Anaemia, until Dad developed it and then died from it last June.

I promised Dad that I would run a marathon for him, as a small tribute to the way he stoically and bravely fought this condition last June. Ultimately it overwhelmed him (as well a marathon might me), but let's try and make some good of this. On 7 November I will be running the Exeter Marathon - my first ever marathon, for which your support would be very much appreciated.

Any donations - 20p, 50p, £1 etc, will all support the AAT undertake research to better understand this condition and develop more effective treatments for this pernicious auto immune condition.

Thanks, Chris.
