My story

[p]On Friday 28th February 2020 Izzy will be swimming 250 lengths, an incredible 3.8 miles to raise money for Harry. [/p][p] Two families a week in the UK are told that their child has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a devastating muscle wasting disease that mainly affects boys.[/p][p] DMD is a desperately cruel disease. It's the most common genetic killer of children worldwide. Children will be totally paralysed by their teens and many won't live beyond their 20s. [/p][p]There is no treatment or cure. But thanks to recent breakthroughs, and with your help, we believe we can save them.[/p][p]Duchenne UK are an ambitious and highly focused charity, investing millions of pounds in research right now to bring treatments and a cure and to help this generation.[/p][p]Please help us to END DUCHENNE.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Duchenne UK. 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]

I don’t know much about this story but bumped into Izzy’s mum pool side as her 250 (I think 256 length now) swim was well underway! What an inspiring and positive little girl, all to help a poorly friend! I don’t know you Izzy but I’m still proud of you!!
