My story

[p]Hi! I am going to cycle to Paris with Amy in September - I now have a bike (good start...) and have started training each weekend together. As I'm sure you will be aware, this will be a big challenge for me... at close to 300 miles to cover during just four days! But a) I'm doing it for an amazing cause which is very close to my heart and b) I am hoping that we will enjoy lots of wine and cheese and at the end to celebrate! [/p][p]So why am i doing this crazy weekend... Mum has now been gone for over four years. And yet I'm still in disbelief at how such a beautiful person's life could just slip away so quickly, when she had textbook symptoms of what I now know is a curable disease, if caught early enough. Mum had Necrotising Fasciitis (NF) - a severe infection involving the soft tissue under the skin, which can spread inches per hour. Unfortunately, Mum wasn't lucky enough to have doctors who knew enough about NF to react in a way which could of potentially meant she was here today. But, what Mum would want us to focus on is the now - focusing on spreading awareness of what NF is and potentially helping to avoid what happened to our family. That is exactly the spirit of the charity I am fundraising for, The Lee Spark NF Foundation. [/p][p]The mission of The Lee Spark Necrotising Fasciitis (NF) Foundation is to help those whose lives have been affected by necrotising fasciitis and other severe streptococcal infections and medical staff who are involved with investigating, diagnosing and treating NF.[/p][p]Anything you are able to donate I would truly appreciate and it will help me when I'm powering through the final 100 miles... [/p][p]Laura xx[/p]
