I'm 17 and I have terminal cancer. I've created a bucket list because there are so many things I still want to do in my life ... some are possible, some will remain a dream. My blog is to document this precious time with my family and friends, doing the things I want to do.
You only have one life ... live it!

ULVERSTON Anthony Nolan Clinic
ANTHONY NOLAN BONE MARROW CLINIC
FOR ALL 16 - 30 YEAR OLDS
Ulverston Victoria High School, Springfield Rd
Friday 12th October from 1.30pm until 5pm
Together with Anthony Nolan, I'm hosting a Bone Marrow Recruitment clinic THIS COMING FRIDAY at Ulverston Victoria High School, Springfield Road in Ulverston.
But this one is different!
For the first time ever, 16 and 17 year olds will be able to sign up and make a difference. There is nothing that means as much to me as getting everyone to sign up to be a potential donor. So many people are dying because their match isn't on the register - it could be YOU or your loved one searching for a donor next time. I'm hoping to be there for as much of the clinic as possible, so please come along to meet me and sign up to make a difference.
In addition to members of the public age 16 - 30, I'm inviting eligible students from all local schools and colleges to come along and make a difference -
UVHS who are kindly hosting the event for us, and ...
John Ruskin, The Lakes School and Windermere School.
Cartmel Priory, Dallam, Kirbie Kendal, Stramongate, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Katherine.
I hope I haven't missed anyone out, but if I have, come along and tell me off (and then sign up)!
Teachers, PLEASE help them to get there, this is SO important and it's educational!
Don't forget that this clinic is for anyone from 16 up to 30, so if you know anyone in that age group that isn't already on the register, please bring them along! I expect all the young BAE workers there too and any nice young policemen and firemen ... everyone really. I don't want much lol.
The clinic will be run by staff from Anthony Nolan along with trained volunteers. If you are unsure about joining the register, you can find the answers to lots of questions HERE, watch the video HERE or come along on the day and we'll be happy to talk about it.
PLEASE NOTE:Television will be present and filming on the day.
