Bucketful of Hope

Adam Evans Thomas

04.01.69 - 26.02.04

Pembrokeshire born Adam Evan~Thomas devoted the last 10 years of his life to raising the awareness for the need of blood and bone marrow donors in the treatment of all cancers, not only leukaemia. Before he died, Adam raised £45,000 to test in excess of 3000 blood donors from Pembrokeshire to add to the Welsh Tissue Typing Registry in Llantrisant, nineteen of these new volunteers went on to become matches for patients with leukaemia. His work, along with others, parents searching desperately for matches for their children, brought about much needed financial support for Tissue Typing  from the government.

With this financial support in place, Adam, never one to idle, set  about raising funds for the two hospitals that lovingly cared for him during the bleak times of his illness.
