Story

Harry was diagnosed with Treacher Collin's syndrome when he was born in November 2014. Treacher Collin's syndrome effects 1 in 50,000 live births and is a rare genetic disorder that can cause facial deformities and severe breathing difficulties. As a result of this condition Harry has had a tracheostomy to maintain a stable airway because of his small jaw, a gastrostomy called a PEG to feed him his daily nutrition because he can not tolerate food due to the tracheostomy, BAHA hearing aids to enable him to hear and he will need to learn to communicate using British Sign Language due to him not being able to talk because of the tracheostomy. Harry has been through several surgeries already in his young life and will still undergo many further surgeries throughout his childhood years and into his teens. Harry requires medical care 24/7, clinical appointments at various different hospitals and medical equipment and supplies to care for his needs. Although he has been through so much already and the family have nearly lost him numerous times, he still fights and remains a happy little boy despite his tough journey ahead of him.

    Thank you to everyone who has donated it means a lot and is very much appreciated. I am building up my walking and now doing several miles a day with several hills included. Today I started couch to 5k and I am now back at clubbercise after a short break. The exercise is doing me the world of good my resting heart rate via my fitbit is down from 67 to 57 beats a minute and my fitness has gone from average to good to very good for a woman of my age, I am 51 :D My weight is still an issue but hopefully diet and more movement will help.

    Thank you for those first donations and kind words it really means a lot to me. As I mentioned in my bio I plan to hike Sulphur mountain then carry on to Sanson's peak I plan to do this 02/08/19. At present I am around 4 st over weight with high blood pressure. A few weeks ago I got back into walking and it was then I decided I would hike the mountain opposed to taking the gondola. I have never climbed a mountain before and I am not good with heights but I am determined to do this. Please keep an eye out for more updates.

In August I plan to hike up Sulphur mountain in Canada and continue onto Sanson's peak to the old cosmic ray weather station. This will be a challenge for me in many ways so I thought I could raise some money to help Harry and his family by helping to give them a break.
