My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. [/p][p]I am running the [b]Royal Parks Half Marathon (13.1 miles)[/b] in October this year to raise money for [b]Evelina Children's Hospital[/b] so they can fund life-saving equipment, continue life-changing research and provide the little comforts that make hospital less scary for the youngest and most anxious patient and their families.[/p][p][b]George,[/b] my youngest son was [b]critically ill [/b]in December 2018 with a rare inflammatory condition that affected his brain and spinal cord called [url=https://www.gosh.nhs.uk/conditions-and-treatments/conditions-we-treat/acute-disseminated-encephalomyelitis-adem][b]ADEM[/b][/url] (Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis). This resulted in him being placed into [b]2 medically induced comas,[/b] spending significant time in a [b]Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)[/b] and receiving [b]5 plasma-exchanges[/b] after conventional treatments didn't work for him.[/p][p]Not only did they look after and provide life-saving treatment to George, they also looked after my wife Katie, our eldest son Harry and I as we watched on feeling helpless, powerless and not knowing where this journey was going to take us.[/p][p]Thanks to Evelina’s support, treatment and their ongoing care, I’m please to say George has fully recovered at this time, and unbelievably has no lasting impact on his development.[/p][p]I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for[b] Evelina Children’s Hospital[/b] and exceed my minimum target so they can continue to support the sickest children and their families though the most turbulent times.[/p][p]If you can donate to this challenge, no matter how big or small, I would greatly appreciate it and I know every penny will be spent where it is needed most, although I am hoping to split the money between [b]PICU[/b] and [b]Savannah Ward[/b] as they looked after George during his time with them.[/p][p]I will keep you updated with my training for this challenge as I increase my training over the coming weeks, but please do send me a message if you would like to know more about Evelina and the treatment and support they provided us. [/p][p]Thanks again for visiting[/p][p]Patrick[/p][p][b]PS: If the fundraising passes the £500 mark, I will run the 13.1 miles whilst wearing a TuTu![/b][img]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/resources/fundraiser-images/b735e1c9-56b0-4ccf-a342-b1aa29cc8f76.jpeg[/img][/p][p][img][/img][/p]
