#99 Red Balloons
Wednesday, 30 September 2015
23-year-old Natalie Watters from Newtownards takes part in blood cancer charity, Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI’s year-long #99RedBalloonscampaign at Scrabo Tower.
Natalie’s dad, Michael, was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in September 2012. She began fundraising for the charity and has raised over £4,000. Michael Watters passed away in St James’ Hospital in Dublin last year, aged just 48.
Each month the charity visits iconic locations around the province to mark the 99 people who are diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma every month in Northern Ireland.
To donate to the charity, text BALL06 £5 to 70070.
