Thanks for taking the time to visit my Justgiving Page.
I am cycling the Prudential 100 on 2nd August 2015 to raise money for Breathing Matters and to support research into bronchiectasis, lung infections and lung fibrosis. The Prudential 100 is a 100 mile ride from London out into Surrey then back into London going up the infamous Box Hill, roughly following the route used for the road race in the 2012 Olympics. I hope to do this in about six and a half hours, but I have never ridden such a distance before so this will be a real challenge.
I hope that you can sponsor my ride to raise money for Breathing Matters, and therefore help find better ways of treating bronchiectasis. Bronchiectasis is a disease that causes chronic lung infection that affects about 100,000 people in the UK of all ages, but is scandalously under-researched. Hence we really don't know much about how the disease develops or the best way to treat sufferers to prevent them from feeling ill all the time and to stop them developing progressive disease that eventually causes death, a situation that researchers at University College London are tackling with Breathing Matters support. The money raised will be used to purchase vital laboratory equipment required for analysing samples from patients with bronchiectasis, and so allow us to learn more about the disease and identify new treatments.
It's a cliche, but please do dig deep to help us carry out this vital research!
