My story

[p]I have been given the absolute pleasure of running the Virgin London Marathon 2019 on behalf of the Tourette’s Action charity.[/p][p]As many of you will know my son, James, was diagnosed with Tourette’s Disorder when he was just 10 years old. For the next two years he went to hell and back, taking his whole family with him. [/p][p]He spent practically the whole of year 6 sitting outside an office as he couldn’t manage the class environment. His primary school refused to back us and put him through the statement process because he is academically bright. James was suicidal, violent and lost during this period. [/p][p]Then on his first day at secondary school everything fell apart and we realised James could no longer attend mainstream school. His head teacher could not believe that he had not been statemented. However, even though James could not attend, the school were amazing and very supportive. They helped us through the statement process which ended up taking a whole year of lost education. Without the help of Pauls work and my parents we could not have got through the year. Once statemented we then had to fight to get James into appropriate education. [/p][p]James is now stable with the help of medication, CAMHS, his amazing special needs school and the support of his family.[/p][p]I am taking on this challenge to help promote the profile of the charity to prevent other families going through a lonely unsupported process of understanding Tourettes. Unfortunately we were not aware of the charity when we were struggling, but I am hoping me running in their name will help raise their profile.[/p][p]I would be grateful if you could show your support by sponsoring me on the biggest running challenge of my life. [/p][p]Any amount, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated.[/p][p]many thanks in advance[/p][p]Katy [/p][p]x[/p]
