Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
At the end of our first year in 1997, my wonderful best uni mate Liz went to the doctors because her legs felt numb. A few months later she was diagnosed with primary progressive MS and had to drop out of her course the following term. Her symptoms quickly worsened and her parents had to become her carers. 17 years on, Liz's condition means that hasn't been able to look after herself for years - she requires round-the-clock care which has been extremely hard work for her parents.
While there's not much I can do to help Liz and her family directly, the MS Society continually researches to find a cure for MS and also provides support for those going through what Liz and her family continue to experience, so I'd like to raise some money to help them with their excellent work.
Staff at my workplace (Principality Building Society) voted the MS Society Cymru as charity of the year for 2014 and we're hoping to raise lots of money throughout the year to help people with MS.
I figured that shaving my head would be a great (or stupid?!) way to raise funds - I'm losing my locks on Friday, 2nd May at Morgan's Hair Salon, Dominion's Arcade, Cardiff, during MS Awareness Week. The lowest I'll go is a number 1.5! Please sponsor me, even if it's just a few quid - anything is appreciated.
