Lifelong Birmingham City fan and blood cancer patient, James Cunningham, is living proof about the importance of Cure Leukaemia’s Just One More campaign which Aston Villa, through official charity Villa in the Community, are supporting at tonight’s Capital One Cup third-round tie.
James’ world was turned upside down three months ago when he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
But he is currently benefitting from a clinical drugs trial being administered by Cure Leukaemia-funded specialist research nurse Donna Walsh.
In our video, James, a 70-year-old retired builder, talks about his blood cancer battle and urges fans from both teams to unite and donate Just One More pound to help Cure Leukaemia raise at least £40,000 during #BloodCancerAwarenessMonth.
That is the amount required to fund Just One More specialist research nurse and enable more blood cancer sufferers like Kings Heath-resident James the chance to access potentially life-saving treatments.
