    Story

    I have always moaned about niggling injuries when running, but after hearing about my friends niece, Natalia, things have really been put into perspective.

    Natalia has a proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD), also known as Congenital Femoral Deficiency (CFD). This is a rare, non-hereditary birth defect that affects the pelvis, particularly the hip bone, and the proximal femur. The disorder may affect one side or both, with the hip being deformed and the leg shortened.

    Natalia's condition was picked up on the 20 week scan during pregnancy. It affected the left side of her hip, her left thigh bone and left knee. After birth when she was growing, the shortening in her left leg got worse. Doctors told us lengthening would not be successful and that doing a foot amputation would be her best chance of a childhood. Natalia had hip correction, knee correction and an amputation in March 2017.

    The specialised ability centre in Wythenshaw then took over her care. In less than 3 months she was walking on her new prosthetic leg. Her recovery was tough but she showed her determination and showed doctors just how amazing she is by being up and walking in 16 weeks after surgery.

    It would be great to raise some money for this amazing centre and their staff. Doing a half marathon is the least I can do. Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated and of great use to the essential work the centre does. Thank you.
