The Legacy Ball – silent auction

Bids close 10pm Wednesday 19th October

 

file-page1

We’re RemissionPossible and we want to get as many young cancer patients into Remission as possible by helping in anyway we can!

We were set up by 17 year old Emily who set this whole thing up with her passion for helping others, and now we want YOU to join the RemissionPossible family and help continue her legacy!

There are all sorts of ways for you to get involved.

Our Gift Box project is on the rise and set for big things in the future.

We like hearing about people knitting- could you fashion up some cool designs for us?

We love hearing about fundraising, whether it be for one of our loved charities or not.

We super love educating young people, public speaking, and generally getting the word out there about teenage cancer and the symptoms, the power of young people to make a change in their community doing charity work and the lifesaving awesomeness we all contain.

The thing we love the most? Actual life saving. We have an enormous passion for opening peoples eyes to the fact they could become a lifesaver and one of our heroes by joining the Stem Cell (bone marrow) Donor registry and potentially give someone with blood cancer their life back.
This passion is now our driving force because, after recently relapsing, Emily will need a bone marrow transplant.
Giving blood is also highly recommended!

Now browse around and find out a bit more about us, and help #makeRemissionPossible

  1. I would like to ask Emily’s mother to come and speak with regard to the fund raising

  2. Dear Folks,

    Fantastic news about the funding in the Argus. I’ve been speaking with the College Principal and the Head and Deputy Heads of Learner Services as you know. The College is hugely supportive about some ideas I had, for instance in Freshers Week, on one of the Enrolment Days, they would provide me / us / you with double desk space where we could hopefully “catch the eye” of new Students. I was thinking that with some advertising behind / around / on the desk space, with packs from Anthony Nolan & Delete Blood Cancer we could hopefully engage with some of these folks and get them “signed up” to the registers. Anyway, I’m having a telephone meeting with our Head of Department for Child Care and Health & Social Care tomorrow, Paulette Languard. I’m going to pitch to her with regards to her and her Team considering having “Remission Possible” as our chosen Charity for the coming academic year, or, if not as the sole charity, then considering it as an additional charity for the coming academic year. Anyway, I’ll give you an update as soon as I’ve got some more information to give and hopefully we can engage with these young people, a number of whom already travel with me on the train each day, from Cwmbran. Love and thoughts, God Bless, from Andrew, Emily and Lucy. xxx

  8. Stay strong in thought and spirit and it’ll help you through this physically challenging but fantastic treatment Emily. I stayed in the room with my husband when he had his BMT for leukaemia – that was 11 years ago and he’s still well! You can do this, keep sight of the wonderful events you wish for your future and how much you’re loved by all those closest to you.🙂

  9. Hi Emily, I’m running for Anthony Nolan this year as I had a stem cell transplant 4 years ago. I hope it is going ok and you are getting stronger each day. I hope you don’t mind me mentioning you in a fundraising video I have just made and asking friends to sign up to the register. Your positive story of finding a donor through Anthony Nolan is great to hear. I wish you all the best, if you need to hear from a fellow stem-cell person or would like to have a chat don’t hesitate to get in touch! #remissionpossible

  10. It’s amazing what they can do for NHL these days, there has been so much medical advancement. My husband had a donor stem cell transplant 2 years ago and is doing very well. It’s not an easy road but you can do it! We’re full of gratitude to selfless donors who perhaps don’t even get to know that they saved a life. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Bev

  12. Hi Emily I myself have been batteling non-hodkins lymphoma since 2010. Had my spleen removed and went last year to Germany for treatment in Berlin. Dr. Kalden is an oncologist. He is very successful with his treatments based on naturopath. After the treatment I went on an alkaline diet, which also may benefit your sipplings, after reading their problems. I have gained all my energy back, no sign of cancer, and feel with 74 years of age as healthy as teenager. You can contact Dr.Kalden at kalden@kalden.de, it is worth it.

  18. Just before his 14th birthday my grandson Morgan “Mo” was diagnosed with this awful disease. You know what the treatments like, and what he went through. He is a 2 yr. survivor now. Through it all his faith got him and the rest of the family through! He told us “I’m not afraid. God is with me.”. Now he shares his personal witness before church groups, and anywhere that asks him too. He’s a drummer and guitarist and plays in a church band for a church plant just getting a good start up. He was at Blank Children’s Cancer Center in Des Moines. The social workers there were so good to our family when he was there that I’m sending several Anna dolls for them to distribute to patients and patients siblings. My prayers for you join the hundreds of others being lifted up for you and your family.

  19. Hi Emily, remission is possible-my mum had a stem cell transplant for acute myeloid leukaemia last December, and a year on is doing fabulously! I’m in the Anthony Nolan register and would be honoured if I could help you. For those that are too old to donate via Anthony Nolan, Delete Blood Cancer also has a register. You can do this, Emily, and i will be thinking and praying for you. Xxx
