HELP! Votes needed to get Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia book published!
Sports Shots is appealing to our followers to get behind our long-time friend Ed Jones as he strives to see his book get published on his own experiences of Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia.
Ed Jones with fellow charity fundraiser Ian Botham
Happy-go-lucky PE teacher Ed’s world changed forever in March 2006, when he returned from a school rugby match to find some missed calls from his GP on his mobile phone. Told to report to hospital ‘as a matter of urgency’ the next day, Ed found out he had been suffering, without any inkling, from Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia for a substantial amount of time. Now it was up to him to get on and make the best of it.
Ed has written a book as he aims to educate sufferers, plus their family and friends, but needs a thousand votes to get the green light to be published. With this in mind, and our ethos on how we promote awareness into illness, we are asking for you to vote for him as we need to get this book published! We need to help the sufferers of today, ease their fears, support their needs! You never know, it could be you or a member of your family who benefit from it!
Ed has done this because –
Noting a lack of supportive literature, apart from leaflets that explained the biology of it all, Ed set about writing his own. He tells his story with an eye for detail, the poignant and the humorous. Join Ed on his journey through various medications and side-effects, fundraising efforts and personal battles. He tells how he rose to the top one per cent of JustGiving earners, whilst tackling the demands of life and his deadly blood cancer, leukaemia.
