My story

[p]It’s madness I tell you!!! 10 more miles for these two charities at The Cabbage Patch run in Oct. I am extending my fundraising campaign since I did not meet my target. Previous message.... Running 10k on Sat 15th and Half Marathon in Sun 16th - I do all the hard work so you don’t have too! All you have to do is press a few buttons... I’m running to support two charities this September, MDS and Restored.. please read info below and give what you can to help raise awareness and much needs funds. Thanks very much! Jx[/p][p][br][/p][p]Myelodysplastic syndrome (myelodysplasia)[/p][p]Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a type of rare blood cancer where you don't have enough healthy blood cells.[/p][p]It's also known as myelodysplasia. [/p][p]There are many different types of MDS. Some types can stay mild for years and others are more serious.[/p][p]MDS can affect people of any age, but is most common in adults aged 70 to 80 years. [/p][p]What happens in MDS?[/p][p]Normally, the spongy tissue found inside bones (bone marrow) produces:[/p][p]red blood cells to carry oxygen around your body[/p][p]white blood cells to help fight infection[/p][p]platelets to help your blood clot[/p][p]But in MDS, your bone marrow doesn't make enough of these healthy blood cells. Instead, it makes abnormal cells that aren't fully developed (immature).[/p][p]As the condition develops, your bone marrow gets gradually taken over by the immature blood cells, which don't work properly. [/p][p]They squeeze out the healthy ones, making the number of cells that manage to get into the bloodstream lower and lower.[/p][p]The condition can develop slowly (indolent) or quickly (aggressive), and in some people it can develop into a type of leukaemia called [url=https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/acute-myeloid-leukaemia/]acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)[/url].[/p][p][url=https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/myelodysplasia/]https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/myelodysplasia/[/url][/p][p]*********[/p][p][b]Restored is an international Christian Alliance that aims to transform relationships and end violence against women (VAW) by working through and with the church and Christians worldwide[/b][/p][p]Violence against women is one of the biggest issues of our time.[/p][p][br][/p][p][img]https://restored.contentfiles.net/media/thumbs/1e/23/1e23b30d1d12b0c0af6fcb2d3074ed53.png" alt="Statistics " height="353" width="960[/img][/p][p][br][/p][p]According to [/p][p][url=http://www.unwomen.org/en/what-we-do/ending-violence-against-women/facts-and-figures]UN Women[/url][/p][p]An estimated 35% of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner at some point in their lives.[/p][p]An estimated 133 million girls and women have experienced some form of female genital mutilation/cutting across Africa and the Middle East.[/p][p]Around 120 million girls worldwide (c.10%) have experienced forced intercourse or other forced sexual acts at some point in their lives.[/p][p]Women aged 15-44 are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than from cancer, car accidents, war and malaria, according to World Bank data.[/p][p][url=https://www.restoredrelationships.org/]https://www.restoredrelationships.org/[/url][/p]
