In October 2018 my wife, Jane Cleary was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia) and our journey as a family started then.
Intense chemotherapy initially put it into remission and the summer of 2019 seemed normal but later that year the leukaemia had returned and by Christmas Jane was having further intense chemotherapy and on the waiting list for a bone marrow transplant.
In June 2020 as Covid lockdown was in full swing Jane went through the transplant procedure successfully and then it was a waiting game to see if her donor cells would win the fight against her aggressive leukaemia carrying cells. Unfortunately by Christmas 2020 the leukaemia was proving too strong and returned once again giving Jane only 10-20% chance of recovery and she gave one hell of a fight trying to overcome the illness but sadly lost her fight in August 2021.
Our Children Georgia and Max have been through so much in these past 3 1/2 years and like their mother they have taken it in their stride and shown incredible bravery throughout.
It will be an honour to see the ‘Jane Cleary Memorial Match’ take place and the fact we can use this event to raise funds for Daisys Dream is something we are proud of as they continue to support my family.
Whatever you can offer will be gratefully received
Love and wishes
Jason, Georgia and Max Cleary Jason Cleary
