Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

10 years ago yesterday I was given the life changing news that I had MS. At the time I was devestated not knowing what the future held for me. Researching just seemed to make it all worse as the future looked fairly bleak. Yes I had a few days of depression thinking that my life was just about over and that I would never get to do all the things I wanted to but then I kicked myself up the bum and decided that this was just the exact reason to start living my life!

So from then I gave myself a challenge to do each year, so far I have progressed my career, climbed mountains (both physically and metaphorically), walked miles, conquered fears and had 2 amazing children with my husband. But I wouldn't have been able to do anything on my bad days without the amazing support of the most fantastic set of family and friends a person could ever have!! THANK YOU ALL!

Last year I started a new medication which has literally given me my life back again! I now feel better than I have for years so now its a time for me to help others. As this coincides with my 10 year anniversary I have decided that over the next 12 months I plan on taking raising as much money as I can for the MS Society so hopefully others can find their magic medication to make them feel even a little bit as good as I do!

This is all going to start off with a cake bake, so I will be baking a few cakes in May and all I ask is that you put a few pennies in a pot for a piece of cake! It'll be cheaper than buying one from Costa or Starbucks!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
