My story

[p]LATEST UPDATE: I did it!!! I ran 26.2 miles. It is the most challenging thing I’ve done, but trusting in my training & huge amount of support from Rocco, Elisia, friends, family and the New Berkeley Harriers got me through.[/p][p]Thank you x[/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]I’ve been given the opportunity to run the 2018 London Marathon for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. Many will be aware why this charity means so much to me, but for those who don't.....[/p][p] [/p][p]In 2008 after 2 years of trying to start a family, our first and second pregnancies were both ectopic.[/p][p][br][/p][p]This is a life threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in early pregnancy; affecting 1 in 80 pregnancies in the UK. Those who suffer face the physical trauma of major invasive treatment, their own mortality, the impact on their future fertility and the sadness of losing their baby all very quickly.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The EPT helpline, supported me during the emotional turmoil of fear, anger, sadness and guilt. The website offered me hope, and helped me to realise that there was nothing we could have done to prevent the inevitable. 2 years later we were blessed with our beautiful daughter Elisia, but I will never forget how grateful I was for the support of the EPT.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The charity relies on donations to support women and their families through this difficult period of their lives; and also provide information, education and support to medical professionals who treat early pregnancy complications. If you'd like to know the difference even £5 can make to the EPT then please see here: [url=http://www.ectopic.org.uk/get-involved/donate/]http://www.ectopic.org.uk/get-involved/donate/[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]I realise that folks are inundated with sponsorship requests, so thank you for your time and consideration. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donation.[/p]
