    • JohnBarrett-LondonMarathon2019

      I’m running the London Marathon on 28th April 2019!

      Though this will be my 3rd London and my 5th Marathon, it's 7 years since my last run at this crazy it'll be tough!

      But, I’m doing this for a great cause, it is with much sadness that my wife lost a truly wonderful person, her sister Catherine, who very sadly became ill with Sporadic CJD, only diagnosed last year and just
      51 years old. Leaving her Dear Husband, 2 wonderful sons, a Dear Brother, my Dear wife and Cath's Dear Sister now in Oz and of course many friends and other family, devastated.

      It was so painful seeing her suffer and the family suffer, with this quite devastating illness, it was truly heart-breaking. Catherine and the family battled til the last, when she sadly could hold on no more. But she left us with such dignity and grace, it was peaceful, with the family there with her.

      I'm so sad just writing this, but happy that her suffering is no more, and she is now at peace.

      With the cause unknown for this form of CJD, there desperately needs research done and ongoing support for sufferers, family, friends, anyone
      connected with this dreadful illness. The CJD Support network offers this much needed support network. So, for me and all who knew Catherine, I’ve no hesitation trying to raise money for this very worthwhile Charity

      Hoping that one day their help (your help) can find a cure, but even until then give the much-needed support sufferers and family need at this very traumatic time in their lives.

      {For more about The CJD Support Network pls click here}>

      Your donation will help The CJD Support Network continue supporting sufferers and their families & increase public and medical awareness. Funds raised also go towards promoting research and to help sufferers and their families with financial help.

      Please give generously, so that Dear Catherine's death to this illness is not in vain and with your help the number of case will reduce with improved research and until then help will continue to be available for those who need it.
