My story

[p]On 29th June - 1st July 2018 I will be taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks for the charity AMEND as part of their 15th Anniversary celebrations! [/p][p]The adventure begins on Friday 29th June, when the camping commences, where I will join my fellow trekkers for a hearty meal ahead of our 1st ascent! Our 1st full day will involve 6-8 hours trekking, firstly south through the Broad Green Dale before taking on Ingleborough and Whernside, which I’m sure will be challenging & provide some spectacular views (let’s hope the weather is kind!) Our 2nd day trekking will take 4-5 hours where we will tackle the final peak Pen-y-Gent to complete the hat-trick. As we climb, we enjoy breathtaking views making our way up to the summit which is 694m at its highest point! [/p][p]AMEND have been a big part of my life since being diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called MEN1 in 2010 (please follow this link for full details of my condition [url=https://www.amend.org.uk/flippingbooks/patient-information-books/men1/men1.html]https://www.amend.org.uk/flippingbooks/patient-information-books/men1/men1.html[/url]). [/p][p]Following a rocky road (pun intended!) of health challenges I underwent 2 lots of pancreatic surgery in 2010 to remove benign tumours known as Insulinomas, which really was life changing. I am closely monitored annually & have a great medical team supporting me. This trek is an opportunity to give something back to AMEND after all the support they have provided me with over the years & continue to do so; I can’t speak highly enough about them! [/p][p]AMEND carry out vital work to support individuals, please visit their website for further information [url=http://www.amend.org.uk]www.amend.org.uk[/url], it’s a brilliant charity & one that I’m very proud to be a part of! [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to view my page, any donations big or small is very much appreciated! [/p][p]Laura X [/p]
