Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I was diagnosed with this condition in 2007 & would like to raise money & awareness about this little known disease. So with my husband with me every step, we are going to walk to the very top of Ben Nevis, all 4,409ft of it :) this will be sometime in September so I have 3 more months to train :)

Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a disease of the bile ducts that causes inflammation and subsequent obstruction of bile ducts both inside and outside of the liver. The inflammation impedes the flow of bile to the gut, which can ultimately lead tocirrhosis of the liver, liver failure, andliver cancer. The underlying cause of the inflammation is believed to beautoimmunity; and more than 80% of those with PSC have ulcerative colitis. The definitive treatment is a liver transplant.
