This week's winter challenge charity prize goes to Bloodwise

18 December 2017

University Winter Challenge charity prize winner Rosie has donated £25 to Bloodwise. Bloodwise funds world-class research, provides practical and emotional support to patients and their loved ones and raises awareness of blood cancer.

'My chosen charity is Bloodwise who work to stop people dying from blood cancer, make patients’ lives better, and look for ways to stop blood cancer happening in the first place. I support this charity in memory of my cousin Dan who died of leukaemia last year.

Bloodwise found the only suitable bone marrow donor in the world for him; if things had worked out differently, it would have given him the best chance of defeating leukaemia for good, for which myself and my family are very grateful. ' - Rosie
