I’ve been following Adrian’s blog for some time as he charted his battle with two forms of leukaemia. He has charted the highs and lows of his battle with cancer on his blog.
Adrian Sudbury has been a reporter for both the Huddersfield Express and Chronicle Series and the Huddersfield Examiner. In November 2006 the 25-year-old was promoted to digital journalist, effectively editing the new-look Examiner website. Just two days into his new role he became seriously ill and called in sick. A week later he drove himself to A&E and was eventually diagnosed with leukaemia. It was then identified that he actually has two distinct types of the disease running at the same time. According to the medical literature he is the only person in the world to have this condition. As such, it has not been possible to offer Adrian a prognosis. Here he shares his experiences of the disease and his treatment.
He has also run a very successful campaign where he wants to get a 40 minute talk to all second year sixth form students about why it’s important to think about donating blood, bone marrow and organs.
I write about Adrian because he has posted that he is moving into the closing stages of his life and that he has literally a weeks fews at most to live.
Read his latest post and leave a comment of support if you can.
