Just a very short note to everyone who has supported me during 2012 as I campaign for better access to CML drugs. There is progress, it is slow but I’m not going to give up. I start 2013 with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

So many people have helped and supported me this year and I am grateful to everyone. However I would like to single out my consultant Charlie for keeping me alive, the chaps at Insight, Tony Gavin (Leukaemia Care) who is an amazing mentor and friend, Nigel Deekes who had a BRILLIANT idea and Henry Winter (Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) for always thinking of me. Also to Kelly and Luca for putting up with me always working – it is worth it, I promise.

I hope you all have a healthy and happy 2013.
