Edmont pledge support to ‘Giving Terry a Chance’ campaign
Edmont support many different local charities and events in the local community. But few are closer to the hearts of our team than the recently launched campaign supporting Terry Playle, who has worked for one of our major bricklaying subcontractors here at Edmont. Terry’s friends and family are joining together in a quest to raise £50,000 to get to a clinic in Russia for potentially life-changing treatment for Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS).
37-year-old dad, Terry, was diagnosed with SPMS almost 5 years ago, and has since been diagnosed with lesions in the brain following extensive testing. Terry and his family are hoping to raise the funds to seek a potential treatment called a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT). This is where infant cells from Terry’s bone marrow are taken from his body, followed by an intense chemotherapy treatment, and then replaced in order to regenerate a new, healthy immune system.
