Ian and children - Spring appeal 2022

"It was a total bolt out of the blue"

Ian was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 43. 

"How was it that I could be diagnosed with what transpired to be the fifth most common cancer in the UK, but yet I’d never heard of it? 

I was diagnosed with something I knew nothing about; it was a total bolt out of the blue. 

As a single father to three children, then just 4, 5 and 7 years old, I suddenly faced huge emotional and practical challenges."
