Story

Hi All,  Thanks for taking the time to look on my JustGiving page.   I'm running the London marathon this year (yikes!) and any support received would be amazing to help raise money for the Meningitis Research Foundation.
  
This cause is very personal to me as it's something me and my family have experienced first hand.  My beautiful baby niece Florence Grace was born in February 2010 fit and healthy and we were all very excited as she was the first grandchild of the family.  At just 3 weeks old Florence contracted meningitis and septicaemia and was rushed to hospital where the doctors and nurses had to act fast to help save her life.   After a long stay in Great Ormond Street, Florence was allowed to come home but she has been left with brain damage and is blind. 
  
This foundation works towards improving survival rates, outcomes and promoting awareness.  I would be over the moon with any donation no matter how big or small as every little helps.
  
Thank you for taking the time to read this and wish me luck ;-) !!!
