Family's cycling challenge to provide mum support during leukemia fight

1 1 26

A Norwich cyclist is set to complete a 160-mile ride to Sheffield to support his stepsister in her leukemia fight, after her family was given no financial support while shielding.

Sue Whitfield, 35, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2017 and is set to have a bone marrow transplant next month following some success from trial treatment at King's College Hospital, in London.

Her husband Andrew stopped working as a nurse practitioner and her children home schooled to prevent bringing the virus home but the decision meant the family has not received any financial support.
