I’m Rachel & on St Patricks Day 2015, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. (AML) After months of intensive chemotherapy my consultant along with the team at Barts decided my best hope of a cure was to proceed with a stem cell transplant.

I’m more than a blood cancer patient, although at times that does seem to be what my life revolves around 24/7. Hopefully reading my blog you’ll discover that there is more to me than blood cancer, as I share the journey of the SCT and life post the transplant, I hope to raise awareness of Blood Cancer and Stem Cell Donation.
