I WOULD like to say a huge thank you to Gwen and Tony Allsen and all the committee from Birmingham Heartlands Leukaemia Support Group for all their years of devoted hard work, fund raising, organising day trips/holidays etc and caring.
I have only been a member and a patient for three years but it was founded in 1995. I appreciate all the effort and the hazards behind the scenes that we don't see - all done voluntarily. Many patients like myself come from the Solihull, Knowle and Dorridge area but most are treated in Ward 19 at Heartlands Hospital.
Gwen and Tony are retiring to Spain and sadly no one has come forward to continue the good work of this very successful support group. They will be greatly missed and I send sincere best wishes for their future.
Margaret Feasey and family, Mill Lane, Dorridge
