Throughout my adult life I have battled bipolar disorder and the highs and lows associated. The greatest solace I have found from this terrible disease that claims the lives of 10% of sufferers has been sport. Finally I have found the courage to pursue my dream of becoming a professional football player which is starting to materialise quicker than I could have ever imagined obtaining trials at QPR (English Championship) within 2 weeks of quitting my job to pursue this dream. Currently I am living week to week and would like support towards living, travelling and training costs associated with becoming a professional footballer. The odds are slim but I know with hard work, dedication and support from friends families and kind strangers the dream of playing in the premier league can become a reality. Please donate today and hopefully my story can inspire others. 10% of future salary will go to charitable and other philanthropic causes.
