Most of you that visit my page will have no idea what’ Guillain-Barré syndrome is but sadly I have seen what this rare autoimmune condition can do to people. I will be running the London Marathon for my best friends mum who has sadly been in hospital for just over 2 years. I will be wearing the shirt proud and trying to raise as much money and awareness to help people in the future.
Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare autoimmune condition affecting the peripheral nervous system, usually leading to temporary or long-term paralysis. Around 80% of those with GBS will make a good recovery, but between 5-10% of people will not survive and the other 10-15% may be left with severe mobility or dexterity issues. GAIN helps people understand and manage both acute and chronic variants of the syndrome, raises awareness, and promotes clinical and non-clinical research into these conditions.

If anyone can spare any money to donate to this wonderful charity I will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Jade xx
