My story

[p]My step-dad Derek Campbell, a 51-year-old non-smoker, was diagnosed last year with a rare and incurable lung condition called Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis.[/p][p]Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis (CPA) affects 3 million people around the world, but is very often mis-diagnosed and confused with other health problems such as cancer or tuberculosis. Treatment of CPA is most often using antifungal drugs, which can be effective in limiting the advance of the disease though cannot cure it.[/p][p]Unfortunately, Derek has been found to have a very complicated case affecting both lungs and it is inoperable. He receives antifungal therapy to try and slow the infection down, but has already found to be resistant to one of the main medications used to treat the condition.[/p][p]This is why even although I'm not a runner I have chosen this challenge to try and raise funds for the charity FIT (Fungal Infection Trust), in the hope that with further research and awareness one day a cure may be found. If you can help in even the smallest way it would be very much appreciated.[/p][p]Thank you,[/p][p]Gemma[/p][p][img][/img][/p][p][img][/img][img][/img][/p]
