Adrian Sudbury

This is a very sad post because I feel that the world has lost someone wonderful...Adrian Sudbury. I do not know this guy but he's left an amazing impression on me and countless other people around the world. This very young guy, living in England was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, they began treatment only to have it not work, this was when they found he also had Acute Myeloid Leukemia, this is the first known case of someone having both types of leukemia at the same time. But this did not stop Adrian, he fought on to live his life and he made a difference. His fight to raise the awareness of the importance of Bone Marrow Donations went right to 10 Downing Street. To read more about this amazing guy read his blog : Baldy's Blog.
I am so in awe of this young guy and I feel gratitude to him because it's because of people like him that this disease will be stopped and a cure will be found.
Go free Adrian, you are a star and you will shine forever. RIP.
