    Story

    I was diagnosed with Primary Immunodeficiency (PID) just over two years ago, as a direct result of ground-breaking research undertaken by the Immunodeficiency Centre for Wales at the University Hospital. PID is a rare, potentially life-threatening disease in which part of the body's immune system is missing or functions improperly. However, there is a general lack of awareness about it, and the condition is generally under-diagnosed, with some people experience symptoms all of their life before diagnosis.

    The awesome work undertaken by the doctors and nurses at The Immunodeficiency Centre means that more people are now being diagnosed and treated earlier and therefore increasing quality of life for them. However, this inevitably stretches their limited resources. I would not have been diagnosed or have started my treatment (3-weekly infusions of immunoglobulin), if it weren't for them and I feel strongly that I would like others to benefit too.

    Our aim therefore, is to raise money and awareness for PID Research so more people can be diagnosed, treated and have healthier and longer lives. So I have set a challenging target of raising £5,050 over the next year, by travelling to 50 countries in my 50th year. Our travels are self-funded, so every penny donated will go to the Immunodeficiency Centre for Wales (less JustGiving fees).
