Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

A year ago I was in a wheelchair, now I am trying to cover 31KM in a week for Lifeblood.

In November 2010 I had knee surgery, following the surgery there were complications and in February 2011 I was diagnosed with a DVT & multiple PE's. In October 2011 I was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden & Protein C Deficiancy & Post Thrombotic Syndrome.

I am trying to cover 31KM in a week, which is a challenge for me seeing as last year I was in a wheelchair, and on crutches I was breathless walking 50 metres .

I am initally rasing money for Lifeblood, however my on going goal is to set up a support chairty for people affected by Thrombosis, please take a look at my blog www.thrombosissupport.blogspot.co.uk

I don't know where I would be without the information and support I have found through LIFEBLOOD, the work they do is amazing, and thrombosis should be as widely known as cancer. Unfortunately Thrombosis does kill, but together we can raise money and awareness and save lives.

So please dig deep and donate now.
