Charity Registration No. 1085527

Story

In March 2000 I was diagnosed as anaphylactic after a severe allergic reaction to a piece of fish I'd eaten. 

In July 2013, my daughter who was less a year old, after many months of unidentified pain, sickness and rashes was diagnosed with multiple severe allergies; which now includes milk, egg and rice.

Its rough as an adult, its even worse as a parent; and I'd do anything to make this go away for my daughter.

So, what am I going to do?

Train to run 4 races in both USA and France (a combination of 10km and 1/2 marathon distances) to earn 7 Disney medals.

Why the number 7?

I always remember the nurse who explained to me that with an anaphylactic reaction, you can be unconscious in 6 minutes and if no action is taken - dead after 7!

The Anaphylaxis Campaign helps raise awareness, supports research and gives advice on this condition.
