My story

[p]Two lasses with chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis are about to embark on a monumental challenge: A 5k run (the warm up), a 25 mile hike (the build up) and then the biggie - [b][u]a timed climb up Mount Snowdon, via one of the hardest & most technically difficult routes imaginable. [/u][/b][/p][p]We've got an auto immune disease - why would we put ourselves through something like this? [/p][p]Our question is - [i][u]why not? [/u][/i][/p][p]We're raising vital funds for Alex's Wish & Cancer Research UK. Cancer patients and sufferers of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy would do anything to have even half the mobility that we have, and we're hyper aware of this. We want to use the short time we're on earth to do everything we possibly can, to live life to the fullest and do good things for our community. [/p][p]Every day, hundreds of thousands of people battle and lose their fights with Cancer. Around 2,500 boys suffer with DMD, which takes away the use of their limbs before moving on to their organs. [/p][p][br][/p][p]For us, we can recuperate in bed with strong painkillers & well-positioned pillows to alleviate swelling to our knees and ankles, but for terminally ill people, the simplest of tasks feel like climbing Mount Snowdon. [/p][p]So please help us complete our challenge. Together we're going to dig deep, be brave & have the courage to go further than we've ever gone before. [/p][p]Pain. Pfft. [i][u]Bring it on. [/u][/i][/p][p]Thanks for your support![/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]DISCLAIMER: [i]We will be completing this challenge with a medic in tow. Both Sophie and I are under consultant Rheumatologists who have cleared us to take part in these challenges because our health is relatively stable at the moment. We will be medicating via the monthly painkillers that we have on a routinely basis & won't be asking for additional prescriptions which might put NHS Wales under strain. We're making do with what we've got and have both booked time off work to recover! [/i][/p]
