The Sheffield-born journalist lost his battle with leukaemia yesterday at the age of 27. Having been told that his was condition was fatal, Adrian donated the last months of his life to raising the profile of bone marrow donation and during that time became a most persuasive, eloquent and likeable spokesman for that cause, whether he was communicating through his blog or going to Downing Street to petition the Prime Minister.

It’s not really my place to write a gushing eulogy – you’ll find plenty of touching tributes on his blog & over at this online book of rememberence – but considering his deeply impressive achievements in publicising the need for more bone marrow donors, the least I can do is leave this meagre link for anyone who wants to find out more about what is an easy & painless process.
