Diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukaemia at the age of 21
I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukaemia (ALL) in 1990 at the age of 21. I had been feeling unwell for a few months but kept passing it off as flu until I collapsed playing football and was rushed to hospital. Within days it was confirmed I had ALL and went straight into treatment at Belfast City Hospital. I underwent aggressive chemotherapy and radiotherapy to prepare me for a bone marrow transplant in the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. I am so grateful for the work the Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI does, without them and the research that they support I possibly may not be here today.
