After a happy year of being away from this terrible disease, it came back. He was put on a trail drug in Birmingham to start treating it and Dad signed up to extra trails for the researchers to see how the drugs affected other parts of the body and so on. This lead to his second bone marrow transplant which took place over the summer which was successful for a couple of weeks. Sadly something went wrong and Dad was unable to win this battle.
I am proud of my dad for everything he did and the ambition he had to do.
I set myself the challenge to create the program for his funeral. (As the funeral directors designer did not understand kerning for a start). I decided to go for a clean, understated design. As I wanted to explore my Dads treatment in my final major project at university. My dad kept a record of most of the treatment they gave him which I feel is a wealth of knowledge/data that just should not decay on a memory stick somewhere.
