Please take the time to read this short story.
It is about a little lady called Isabella. My wife went to school with Isabellas mummy and we have followed her story from the start. Isabella is the same age as my daughter and by the looks of things just as much of a little pickle. The difference is Isabella was born with a poorly heart (hypo-plastic right heart). Within days of being born she underwent open heart surgery. Since then she has had to have 4 more open heart procedures and also suffered a stroke mid way through last year. She has spent countless nights in hospital hundreds of blood tests and is still using a tube for feeding. If this has happened to any of us I can safely say we would wouldn't look half as happy as this beautiful girl. I can only imagine the strain, heartache and emotion that the whole family has gone through yet they are so strong.
Isabella and her family have recently visited Leeds General Infirmary and handed out Christmas presents to the other children on the ward- by the looks of things they all did an amazing job. Isabella still has journey ahead but she has conquered so much so far she will continue to fight and have a wonderful future with a wonderful family.

I am raising money to help the charity that has supported her from the start. For me it is a huge challenge and 1 that I am having to train very hard for but with her at the back of my mind it somehow feels easier. Please give what you can.
