Hi all 👋 I'm Joseph and I'm running the TCS London Mini marathon on April 20th.

I was diagnosed in 2020 with cholesteatoma this is a disease that basically eats everything in its way, unfortunately for me it decided to eat away my hearing bones. Iv now had 4 surgeries to remove recurring cholesteatomas and reconstruction surgery where I had titanium ear bones fitted a new ear drum and much more.....

Unfortunately Iv lost a huge amount of my hearing and I wear a hearing aid, I'm also having problems in my other ear but that's another story.

Iv been very lucky to get a place in the mini marathon, so I want to raise as much money as I can to support other children with hearing loss to live life like I do the max!

My hearing aid is my super power ....well that's what my twin sister tells me 😊

I would love to raise £500 but anything would be amazing , donating a £ or 2 will soon mount up and go to such a great cause.

Thanks Joseph
