My story

[p]I am fundraising for Kidney Research UK as it is a charity very close to my heart. I have pledged to raise £2,100 but would love to smash that total and with your help I can. No donation is too small or too large, I appreciate every penny as does the charity. [/p][p]In 2017 I gave my kidney to a stranger because they needed it. They did not ask for it, but I had a spare to give. I understand how difficult life is on dialysis and that though a kidney is a great help it is not the solution. The solution lies in research, in understanding and finding new ways to prevent, treat and support people with kidney disease. So I like to raise awareness of the value of #livingdonation and the benefits of the research #teamkidney.[/p][p]Please follow my progress as this will be my first marathon since I gave my kidney so this is a real challenge. A need to loose the weight I have gained and train back up to the distance so this is a 6 month programme - starting today! As everyone knows these challenges are not taken in isolation so public here I want to thank Iain (my husband) Becky & Caitlin (my gorgeous girls) and Liz and the gang (Kidney Research fund raisers in Scotland).[/p]

We met you at The Triangle, waiting in line at Costa- you spoke to my daughter who also only had one working kidney. She was inspired by you, we all were. Good Luck on your journey, and thank you for giving a little girl the confidence to do anything!
