Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Matt Rose & Andy Watson are staying awake for 72 hours from 12pm on 4th September 2015. Our aim is to raise awareness of the condition.

"CMT is a genetic condition that damages peripheral nerves. These nerves are responsible for passing on commands from the brain to the muscles (motor nerves) and for passing information to the brain about sensations, such as pain, heat, cold, touch, importantly for balance – where your joints are in space (sensory nerves). When these are damaged, people are said to have a neuropathy.

Because of this nerve damage, people with CMT may find that some of their muscles become slowly weaker over the years, particularly in their feet and hands. Some find that feeling becomes duller, or numb, in the same areas.

In the UK, around 25,000 people are thought to have CMT, making it the most common inherited neurological condition."

We will be broadcasting on our YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/minimattfilms where you will be able to keep up-to-date with what things we get up to (and to see if we've nodded off). We will be broadcasting from our studio in Grimsby & from Freeman Street Market during trading hours.

More info to come.
