Type One Mission (TOM)

Type One Mission (TOM) is a charity that has been founded to primarily raise funds in order to support research projects that are looking into a cure for diabetes and the prevention, in particular, of Type One Diabetes. In memory of Thomas Bucciero who's dream was to find a cure for this disease.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my Just Giving page.

As you may know the swim didn't go to plan, but I told Donna, Toms mum that I would raise money for TOM. I'm not a fan of saying I'll do something and not following through (like the swim) so I have set the total at ideally aiming for £10 per mile I swam rather than a donation based on completion. 

Type One Mission is the closed charity to me and one me and close friends have supported since the passing of Tom. With the 9th anniversaryof Toms passing coming up in early December I though it was fitting to donate any money toward finding a cure to type one diabetes as soon as possible.
