Ben has received a number of messages of support throughout the past 2 years as he's been training for the channel swim. Once you've flicked through some using the arrows to the left and right, you can also add your own message of support if you haven't already!

"Good luck to Ben and the team. As chairman of fundraising for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, I never cease to be amazed by the commitment and enterprise of supporters new and old. So many of them come into this because of their own experience, as I did after losing my best friend and his daughter to leukaemia. Ben lost his father and in every penny he raises, and every swim stroke he makes as he crosses the channel, he will both be keeping his father's memory alive, but also helping to ensure others avoid this horrible disease. LLR is a well-run charity, focused as its name suggests on research - research which has helped seen childhood leukaemia rates drop from being a virtual death sentence to around nine out of ten young leukaemia sufferers now surviving. There is still a lot to do in relation to older people and young adults, which is why the efforts of people like Ben and his friends are so important."

"We’d like to say a huge thank you to Ben Brophy for all the effort he’s put into preparing for his solo English Channel swim attempt, which will raise money for our research into blood cancers. Ben’s already raised a brilliant amount of money which will help us beat blood cancer, and we’re very grateful to everyone who’s sponsored him or supported him in some way. With your help, we’re going to stop people dying from blood cancer, and improve treatments so that a blood cancer diagnosis doesn’t even have an impact on someone’s quality of life. And if it’s at all possible, we’re going to prevent people from getting blood cancer in the first place. Ben, thanks for being part of our Unstoppable team. Together we’ll beat blood cancer."
