Bone Marrow blogger dies after battle with Leukaemia

Filed as News with no comments

Blogger Adrian Sudbury, who blogged publicly about his ongoing battle with leukaemia, has died at the age of 27, the Telegraph reported this weekend:

He began by documenting his experiences on his blog and collected thousands of signatures in an online petition calling on schools and colleges to teach students about the value of donation.

Mr Sudbury, from Sheffield, became ill in November 2006 and was subsequently diagnosed with two distinct types of leukaemia.

The young journalist received a bone marrow transplant and although not successful it bought him valuable time with friends and family.
