I am taking part in a White Collar Boxing event at the Pavilion in Bath on April 14th and I am raising money for the “Tuberous Sclerosis Association”
I am a Care worker and I have chosen this cause to proudly represent for Matthew Godfrey who I have been looking after for the past 8 years.
Matthew was born with Tuberous Sclerosis and also has epilepsy and learning difficulties..to me Matthew is one of the toughest guys I know, but also at the same time is the nicest lad you will ever meet, he really doesn’t have a bad bone in his body which I have always admired.
With the epilepsy Matthew suffers from horrendous seizures which can really wipe him out, but just like any world class fighter the seizures never keep him down and out, he always bounces back.
Matthew is a big inspiration in my life, whatever happens to him he alway maintains a positive attitude, always smiling and is kind hearted and friendly to everyone he meets.
It’s a real honour to take part in this fight to represent for Matthew’s fight with Tuberous Sclerosis.
Tuberous Sclerosis is a rare genetic condition that causes tumours which most often affect the brain, skin, kidneys, heart, eyes and lungs.
Tuberous sclerosis is present from birth, although it may not cause obvious problems immediately. It's estimated that around 1 in every 6,000 babies are born with the condition.
The tumours caused by tuberous sclerosis can result in a range of associated health problems, including:
epilepsy – a condition that causes seizures (fits)
behavioural problems – such as hyperactivity or an autistic spectrum disorder
skin abnormalities – such as patches of light-coloured or thickened skin, or red acne-like spots on the face
the kidneys not working properly
a build-up of fluid on the brain (hydrocephalus)
If you could either sponsor me for this Boxing match it would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers and God bless people!
