Why I support UCLH: Dan and Bianca

Dan fundraised for UCLH to say thanks for treating Bianca

Dan Joyce & Bianca O’Donnell

Dan and Bianca’s world was turned upside down in April 2016 when Bianca was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Before the diagnosis they both enjoyed taking part in sporting events together, completing Ride London 100 in 2015 and Bath Half Marathon in March 2016.

Dan said, “We are so grateful that since the start of this journey she has been looked after so well by the staff at the UCH Cancer Centre, who have provided world-class care and support for both of us and our families.” Dan then decided that he wanted to support the UCH Cancer Fund.

Dan has run both the Paris & London Marathons along with his first triathlon and raised £8,327.65 for the UCH Cancer Fund.

Bianca has said that without the help she received from the Support and Information Service at UCH and the free complementary therapies, going through chemotherapy would have been unbearable. “Witnessing the kindness offered by this amazing Hospital has been incredibly heart-warming.”

You can help to support more people like Bianca by donating to our new cancer and surgery  centre.
