Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am running a marathon a month in 2016/17 to raise money and awareness of Postpartum Psychosis. My sister suffered with this after my nephew Leo was born and it changed our family.

We had never heard of the condition before and not realised that Beth was unwell until she was not able to cope with everyday life.

We spent the first few days looking after Leo and supporting Beth, before she was admitted to the Mother and baby unit in Bornemouth where her condition gradually improved and she was allowed home.

It's only now, nearly 3 years down the line that I don't constantly worry about Beth. She is a tough cookie and will survive anything.

Please donate to help APP do their amazing work supporting families like mine.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I start my marathons on 5th Nov (Leo's birthday) with the Thames marathon. 

Wish me luck for my long training and all my marathons ahead!
