Supporting the Yorkshire Yaks!

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 in News | 0 comments

We are delighted to be supporting local charity fundraisers ‘The Yorkshire Yaks’ Over the next few months the team at Bedale Osteopaths will be supporting the Yorkshire Yaks in their quest to raise money for Macmillan Cancer and the Steve Prescott Foundation. The Yorkshire Yaks are planning to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks at the end of this month but this is just in training for the epic Mongol Rally 2017, when they will be taking two battered 15-year-old cars across 20-24 countries, travelling approximately 15,000 miles to Mongolia, ALL completely unassisted! Read on to see why their story has inspired us to support them… In 2015 the Yorkshire Yaks team leader Adam Alderson almost died due to a rare form of cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP).  Adam is a 37 year old guy who only two years ago, was on palliative care, at home, waiting to die. He’d previously undergone chemotherapy, failed surgery and as the PMP had completely engulfed all his abdominal organs, he was in complete intestinal failure. As a last ditch attempt in 2015 he took the brave decision to undergo a multi-organ transplant, that took 30 surgery staff 17 hours, but it was 100% successful. This consisted of the removal of a 10kg tumor along with his stomach, large and small bowel, gallbladder, pancreas, appendix, spleen, abdominal wall and a large portion of his liver. He was then transplanted with multiple abdominal organs. Adam is currently the youngest person in the world to survive the surgery and the world’s first complete success.
