Supporting Bloodwise since she lost her mum to leukaemia in 2018, Laxmi Hussain who works under the pseudonym 'The Lakshmi' has unveiled her own range of wedding favours for the charity. 

Bloodwise is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with and beyond blood cancer, a cause Laxmi holds close to her heart. 

She says: “Mum was diagnosed with leukaemia at the end of October 2017 and she died shortly after in May 2018. She didn't have long. One moment she was strong, fit and healthy, working full time, the next a 'typical' cold turned into a visit to A&E and then cancer.

“It was in her short phase of treatment that we became aware of Bloodwise and all that they do," continues Laxmi. "Treatment was scary and overwhelming at times. My mum wasn't able to beat cancer and in my grief I sought out other people's journeys as a source of comfort. Although the treatment didn't work for mum, I wanted to know that there were success stories out there. Bloodwise shines a light on this, as well as giving us hope there may one day be a cure.” 

The wedding favours by Laxmi, whose drawings and ink paintings have been exhibited across London, comprise gold pin badges (£2 each) and packets of forget-me-not seeds (£1 each). Displaying the messages, 'Oh Joy!' and 'Always', the favours are a reminder of hope. 

Gold foiled greeting cards are also available, which can be used as wedding invitations or thank you cards, priced at £10 for a pack of 10. 

Available from the Bloodwise online shop as part of its wider wedding collection, all profits go towards the charity's continuing efforts to beat blood cancer.
