Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In May 2014 our son Josh was diagnosed with Crohns disease. At that time he weighed 5 st 8 lbs and hadn't grown for 2 years due to his body not getting any nutrients from his food. It took 2 years to get him finally diagnosed and I am trying to raise as much money as possible for this incredible charity in order to fund research to find a cure for this disease. Over the last 2 years, Josh has been on various immune suppressant drugs, had surgery to remove part of his bowel, endured a lot of pain, been constantly tired, suffered migraines, had constant blood tests and visits to hospital. We need to find a cure for this disease, it is heart-breaking watching someone you love so dearly suffering like this. Josh is great, he is strong, stronger than any of us and is now 8 1/2 stone and taller than me ( which isn't difficult). His strength and courage is admirable for such a young man. He has faced all the above with immense bravery and I could not be more proud. Andrew Banks and Adam Smith, two of our dearest friends are taking part in the Great North run this year to raise money that could be used to find a cure and give Josh and many other sufferers their lives back.
Please help us raise money, anything at all will help.
