Peter aims to use his myeloma diagnosis as a catalyst for change

Dedicated father of two boys, Peter, from Cheshire was diagnosed with myeloma in March 2017. Peter is known to love a challenge. He’s completed an Ironman, holds a private pilot’s license and is also a qualified rugby coach. But today Peter is facing his biggest challenge yet and he needs your help.

Peters treatment for myeloma

Having received two rounds of chemotherapy, which failed, Peter is now on his third round but he has been told that his only chance at a longer healthy life is a blood stem cell donation. 

Unfortunately, a match hasn’t been found in Peter’s family and his second chance of life now rests on finding an unrelated match.

His positive outlook is now firmly fixed on his diagnosis:

“My aim is to use myeloma as a catalyst for living a better, more fulfilling life and documenting the changes I am making in all aspects of my family and work commitments.”
