Andrew Davies is the most recent school leaver to appear on our 'Hall of Fame'

He left Lady Manners in 2017 having spent the majority of his time at LMS in and out of hospital.

Andrew was just thirteen when he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

The aggressive form of cancer is caused by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells in the bone marrow and blood.

Andrew began chemotherapy which caused sickness, hair loss, bleeding and bruising. He underwent a bone marrow transplant in January 2013, spending 25 days in isolation.

The care he received at Sheffield Children's Hospital ensured that within three months Andrew could resume his life once again and was able to return to school.

Within a month of his original diagnosis, concerned friends and family eager to help in any way they could began raising money in Andrew's name.

Upon his recovery, driven by his gratitude for the care he received and the conviction that the environment could be improved for others in a similar situation, he poured his energy into the fundraising initiated in his name.

Soon after, Andrew pledged to raise £150,000, which was the cost of his life-saving bone marrow transplant to the NHS. The fundraising was split evenly between leukaemia research and the Cancer Ward.

After six years Andrew reached his goal of £150,000. What a fantastic achievement and I am proud to add him to our 'Hall of Fame'.
