In august i will be running the manchester 5k fun run to help raise money for katie ford ❤️
katie is a wonderful young lady who needs your help ! Katie now 20 years old has a learning disability and has been raised in a loving foster home for the past ten years. Unfortunatley Katie has a condition called tubular breasts and as she is getting older she is struggling with her confidence and self esteem. The NHS are unable to fund the 3 operations required as they will not fund breast surgery even though its not cosmetic unless the patient has a cancer diagnosis . Katie approached a consultant who agrees Katie does need this surgery and now she needs help to get there . This is a condition that is not only effecting katie physically but mentally. She has become uncomftorable in certain social situations due to her image. Katie desrves to feel confident and comftrable in her body.
Tuberous breasts (or tubular breasts) are a result of a congenital abnormality of the breasts which can occur in both men and women (also see Hypoplasia), one breast or both. During puberty breast development is stymied and the breasts fail to develop normally and fully.
Katie will receive all donations which will go towards her getting the help she needs to move forward as a confident young women , Katie would like to thank you for your help.
