Story

When I was born without legs, there were fears I’d never be able to walk. 

This March I am pushing myself to walk 40km over 4 days. There are many reasons why over the last 40 years I have been able to go from proving those fears to be unfounded to now taking on this challenge. Most of those reasons are down to my mum. She made everything happen and the impossible possible. 

In 2016 she was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. It is a hideous condition. It has hurt our family.  I wish the medical world was ready to cure her but it isn’t. 

There is long term progress being made though so I am ringfencing all my donations to research projects. Sadly this won’t help her but will help others. That sums my mum up. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
