Run for Mum

On June 4th a large group of friends and family are running 5k together to raise money for The Wegener's Trust in memory of a wonderful woman, Dr Elisabeth Fender. 


Elisabeth (Buffy to her friends) had a horrible illness called Vasculitis which is a disease that manifests itself in different ways according to each sufferer. This makes it very difficult to treat and specialists are few and far between. She suffered terribly from this illness and the side effects its treatment for 30 years. Last summer she died. 

She was treated by a wonderful doctor called Dr D'Cruz who has a real understanding of Vasculitis and related diseases.  Vasculitis receives little to no funding in the UK and instead has to borrow its treatments from cancer in the hope that they will work. Dr D'Cruz is currently doing direct research with a scientist in trying to find the cause of Wegener's Granulomatosis which is one of the most common types of Vasculitis. His charity The Wegener's Trust operates out of Guy's and St Thomas's hospitals in London, UK.

By donating to this small, but specialised charity, you will be directly helping more research to be done on this disease and enabling specialists to make real advances in their areas of expertise.

Thank You SO much for supporting our efforts! My Mum would have been so proud of everyone.
