Story

When I was first told I had psoriatic arthritis I didn't really know what it was .I was told there was a genetic link but other than that not a lot.Since my diagnosis 5 years ago I have tried to keep as active as I possibly can but my legs are stiff and swollen which makes walking painful I also have very painful sores  caused by psoriasis..i have now developed  arthritis in my neck and spine so its not looking very good long term mobility wise.I am 60 this summer so I wanted to undertake a personal challenge.and  try and raise money for  the charity which support us with  this little known condition..I have 3 people walking with me,Sue,Lynda and Lesley.We hope to complete the 84 miles in 6 days..

I will be starting the walk on the 6th of April.Please support me if you can.All donations greatfully received !

For those of you who are still not sure what Psoriatic Arthritis is  get  hold of a box set of The Singing Detective and see for yourself.
