My story

[p]Yes, that's right, I'm training to run the London Marathon. But don't go getting any sub-four ideas - small dogs and children run faster than me! I'm doing it for an organisation that is very close to my heart - Fertility Network UK - the national charity supporting everyone who has fertility problems. [/p][p]Going through 11 rounds of fertility treatment without achieving my dream of a family was the biggest physical and mental endurance test I've ever done. That's why I'm now committed to taking on the world's most iconic endurance challenges to raise awareness and money for this important issue - first it was the English Channel, now I'm back on land attempting one of the world's most famous foot races. [/p][p]It is estimated that one in six people struggle to conceive but many of them suffer in silence. It's a life-debilitating experience and I want the world to understand and help so any support you can give will be greatly appreciated by me and FNUK.[/p][p]On my website - www.jessicahepburn.com - you can read more about my book, [i]The Pursuit of Motherhood [/i] and about my current pursuit of 26.2 miles from London's Greenwich to The Mall. [/p][p]Or follow me on Twitter @JessicaPursuit[/p][p]With all my love and thanks[/p][p]Jessica x[/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p]
