My story

[p]Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you for visiting my fundraising page. [/p][p]Rochelle’s mum was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease in 2016, which is an inherited disorder that causes the breakdown of nerve cells in the brain, and impacts a person’s functional abilities, including movement, thinking and psychiatric disorders. It is sometimes thought of like a combination of Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s and Schizophrenia. After the diagnosis we contacted the Huntington's Disease Association for some advice and support. We discovered that there are between 6,000 and 10,000 people in the UK who have HD and only 23 Specialist HD Advisors across England and Wales. We met with our local Specialist HD Advisor who helped us enormously in giving us information about the disease and about what support they can offer us. This charity will play a very important part in our lives now for the foreseeable future. There is a 50 / 50 chance that this disease has been passed on to Rochelle and her younger brother.[/p][p]Shane is running the London marathon to raise money for the Huntington's Disease Association. We would like to give something back for the help we have received so far and we will need in the future, and also to raise awareness about this disease.[/p]
