I am running the London Marathon in 2020. From a 5km runner to a marathon will be one of my biggest challenges.
However, a far bigger challenge was when in October 2018 my daughter was diagnosed with an extremely rare blood disorder: ITP. She developed shocking bruises, and after a blood test check we were called into A&E where we were met by two very concerned consultants at 10pm on a Friday night. Her immune system attacked her platelets. A part of the blood that I had previously given little attention to! (This has since been rectified and I can now wax lyrical about platelets!) It was a terrifying time for us all.
Thankfully, she is now back in full health, but I would love to raise some money to support this amazing charity, which is so small that hardly anyone has heard it! Wonderful.org takes 0 fees and 100% of your donations will go towards the ITP Association so they can provide others with the same support as they gave to all of us.
