My story

[p]On the 29th July, I'll be taking on the Prudential Ride 100, cycling 100 miles through my hometown of London and Surrey in the world's largest cycling event![/p][p]I'm honoured to do this for an incredible and relatively unknown charity that is very close to me - [b]The[/b] [b]Transverse Myelitis society[/b] (http://www.myelitis.org.uk/)[/p][p]Why? My mum! [/p][p]For many of you that may know the mighty Sue Bridge, you probably wouldn't be aware that she suffers daily because it's hidden under a brave smile! [/p][p]17 years ago she was paralysed by the condition Transverse Myelitis and spent nearly 2 years in hospital and rehab. The condition is a total nightmare, it can affect all ages and the cause is totally unknown, there is no cure and it can be completely life changing. [/p][p]The lack of knowledge on the condition is exactly why sufferers and their families don't get the awareness, support or funding to manage the condition and its symptoms.[/p][p]Transverse Myelitis is a rare neurological condition that inflames the spinal cord leading to complete or partial paralyses, with a whole range of dysfunctional problems ranging from respiratory/bowel and bladder problems to many more. [/p][p]Beyond the agony of the condition itself, it has knock-on effects on the immune system opening the door to further conditions and a compromised quality of health.[/p][p]I'm actually quite a keen cyclist and it is all thanks to the Transverse Myelitis charity! 7 years ago I got my first road bike when I cycled to raise money for them and haven't looked back since, so I'm extremely proud to represent them again![/p][p]Any donations that you would like to make are greatly appreciated![/p][p][br][/p][p]#Miles4Myelitis [/p][p]------------------------------------------ [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
