My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page![/p][p]I am fundraising for the Marfan Trust, who carry out crucial research into Marfan Syndrome, a genetic disorder of the connective tissue.[/p][p]My son was diagnosed with Marfan’s in February 2018. He is almost 2 years old.[/p][p]Marfan syndrome effects 1 in 3300 people in the UK. [/p][p][br][/p][p]The body is affected in many ways. A few are listed below:[/p][p]Heart - Dilation of the valves causing fatal aortic tears[/p][p]Skeleton - Loose joints (hyper mobility), curvature of the spine (scoliosis), flat feet, protruding or indented chest bone, joint pain and stiffness (osteoarthritis)[/p][p]Eyes - Dislocation of the lenses, glaucoma, retinal detachment and short sightedness[/p][p][br][/p][p]With help of fundraisers the charity can continue to fund research, treatments and possibly find a cure by finding a way to prevent the over-production of fibrillin which causes Marfan Syndrome.[/p][p]Raising awareness is so important as it is predicted that thousands of people are undiagnosed and prone to possible sudden fatal ruptures of the aorta.[/p][p]Any help/donation is appreciated[/p][p]Many thanks[/p][p]Georgia [/p]
