Vasculitis UK

We help and support people with vasculitis to improve outcomes for vasculitis patients

Story

I'm sorry to start asking for money again, but this one means A LOT.

 

My story is laid out plainly here:

 

http://www.smj.org.uk/0504/deaf.htm

 

Vasculitis (Wegeners Granulomatosis) is the incurable illness which made me say "What?" a hell of a lot!  It's not just a ear disease, it's an everything disease.  It could be a cough, a sneeze, a cold, a sore knee, a failing lung, a failing heart...  You name it.

 

I was lucky that I eventually found the right doctor.  A gentleman called Musheer Hussain at Dundee Ninewells hospital.  He litirally saved my life.  I lost count the number or doctors and consultants who missed it completley.  A large proportion of Wegeners patients are diagnosed during a post mortem.  There is no need, it just needs more awareness and funding.

 

So far races include:

Rome marathon (18/3/2012)

Outdoor Capital Trail half marathon - Fort William (16th May 2012) - Cancelled due to work.  

Plymouth Half Marathon (3/06/2012)

DRAM Dundee running adventure marathon (29/07/2012)

Speyside Way  36.5 mile Ultra-Marathon (25/08/12)

Berlin Marathon (30/9/2012)

 

As with all my fundraising efforts I will be making a gesture.  First 10 donations with £40 or more will have their initials incorporated into my full left arm tattoo completed before Berlin 2012.  If the £2000 target is made, the initials of the donator will also be added.

I'd like to thank Siemens Hearing equipment for endorsing me in these events.  Their support has helped make this all possible.

Thank you.
