War on Cancer – Day 57
Now, my Angels, I told you this weekend would be a big one…
Had this been 10-15 years ago, my blood cancer diagnosis would have been a death sentence. Leukaemia meant you had a couple of months left. Thanks to the progress made in cancer research, I was given a chance to survive and I grabbed it. Hence, the way I see it, is that I owe my life to cancer research. It is time for me to start giving back. I’ve been working long and hard in between treatments to secure everything and I am now finally ready launch.
Let me present to you the #WarOnCancer Wristbands. They are come in three variants; Gold, Rose Gold and Stainless Steel. They are unisex and I personally believe them to be really amazing!
You’ll find them at www.fabianbolin.com/shop
The proceeds from selling these will go to charity, and I have selected two organizations which will receive the funds;
Leuka – www.leuka.org.uk/
Barncancerfonden / The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation – www.barncancerfonden.se/
Leuka is the leading international organization for leukaemia research, and they support young scientists in the early stages of their careers within cancer research. I believe them to suit me and my mission perfectly. As I am Swedish by blood and will receive my full treatment here, funded by all of you wonderful people, I want to honor my nation by selecting a Swedish charity. You all know how deeply I feel for the poor innocent children who are being diagnosed with cancer, they deserve this even less than I do. Many are even too young to understand the hell they are going through. Hence, Barncancerfonden / The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation is second charity that I will support. For the children.
The distance between dreams and reality is called action. This is my way of taking action. Now I ask you to do the same. I ask you to open your heart to this cause, and help me beat this monstrous disease. I ask you to support by wearing a #WarOnCancer Wristband proudly. Show it to the world!
Together we are mighty. Please share this post so that we can reach the hundreds of thousands! You are my Angels, and I love you! <3
Love from the Leukaemia Warrior,
