On July 4th 2003, former England, Crystal Palace and Wolves footballer Geoff Thomas was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia and given just 3 months to live. Thanks to treatment from Cure Leukaemia co-founder Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and a transplant from his sister, Geoff went into remission in 2005.
Inspired by Lance Armstrong’s book about his cancer battle, Geoff decided to take up cycling and rode the full Tour de France route, a day ahead of the professionals in 2005 just months after his remission was announced.
15 years later he will once again take on this epic cycling challenge to raise funds to ensure more blood cancer patients can receive potentially life-saving treatments for the disease. Geoff and his GT15 team aim to raise £1m for Cure Leukaemia to fund 3 world first clinical trials and staff at the globally significant Centre for Clinical Haematology in Birmingham, the hub of a national network of 12 Centres which will be funded by Cure Leukaemia from January 2020.
