    Story

    Having run the London Marathon this year in aid of the NSPCC, I decided to join other Lindt peeps on the Thames Path Challenge, a 100km walk from Putney to Henley, 8th September, and support a cause close to my heart: a Research Team led by Professor Breban, working on understanding and finding ways of dealing with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), a long-term chronic condition that my cousin, Coralie suffers from, in which the spine and other areas of the body become inflamed and very painful.

    Having a treatment that helps manage the pain is very difficult because after a while, the body creates antibodies against the treatment itself, which means this is a constant battle. At her worst times? A heartbeat of 110 when resting, highly inflamed articulations preventing her from walking at all….along with social isolation, people not sticking around when things get serious...The notion of time does change.

    Coralie is the definition of kindness and positivity. I find her naturally gifted in all things creative, which didn’t surprise me when she took on the project to raise awareness of this unknown condition in a positive way, she wanted to give isolation a lesson and started communicating about SA, sharing regularly with a community she’s created on Facebook, raising awareness of research progress, sport events raising funds towards SA etc. A beautiful video clip was produced in 2015 called ‘Grande Patiente’ (on Youtube), where she slamed about SA, explaining what it’s like to live with it.

    So today, I invite you to help me fundraise to help the Research Team of Professor Breban who has dedicated 30 years to SA and the well-being of his patients. He’s extremely touched by the gesture, which is a massive motivation for me to walk through those 100km for those who cannot.

    Thank you in advance on behalf of Coralie, Professor Breban and myself.

      Une aventure merveilleuse qui se termine auj avec un obj atteint! Merci à ma famille, amis, collègues et la belle communauté Spondy qui m a donné les ailes qui me manquaient quand je touchais le fond, et votre positivité qui est contagieuse! On s est amusé, on en a bavé, il y a eu des larmes, des maux, des corps qui nous criaient d’arrêter et ce mental qui pendant les heures nocturnes a été notre pire ennemi, mais c est dans ces moments difficiles que l on arrive à trouver des ressources. L esprit d équipe a été crucial et fédérateur!

      What an amazing journey...! And £1120 fundraised so far for Pr Breban’s research team for Ankylosing Spondylitis! These 100km have been fun, difficult, emotional, rewarding, challenging, Hell at points, and topped with a feeling of gratitude for all the support that has been received - from my dear family, friends, colleagues and from all the Spondy community! Merci! The entire LINDT team has been amazing, we have lived in Blister Town for a while, met our many demons in our long and low moments, but always have supported each other’s back.

      Merci Coralie!! J'ai reçu un super colis, avec ce t-shirt personnalisé Grande Patiente! Je vais le porter avec une immense fierté et je sais déjà qu'il me rappellera ce qui m'a poussée à faire ce challenge lorsque marcher sera difficile - j'appréhende déjà les 10h de marche la nuit tombée! **** Thank you, couz! I was so touched by this wonderful gift of yours I got in the post: a t-shirt with your Grande Patiente brand on it ;) I'll wear it with an immense pride, and it will remind me of why I'm walking those 100k when the going gets tough!
