My story

[p]Hello everybody,[/p][p]So after 10 years of running it for the first time I am attempting to do it all again. [/p][p]And this time it is to raise money for the wonderful National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS). [/p][p]As most of you will know our son Zachary is severely deaf. When Zachary was first diagnosed at six weeks old it felt like so many doors slammed shut on us, but mainly it felt like they had shut on him.[/p][p]We didn't know where to turn.[/p][p]We were lost and very scared.[/p][p]We are lucky enough to have amazing support where we live and they recommened us reaching out to the NDCS. We didn't want to at first. We weren't ready to let anyone in. But, over time, we did and we are so glad we did. From offering support, shoulders to cry on and friendly faces at newly diagnosed weekends, to the amazing resources on their websites,to lending us technology to incredible support when we faced local government cuts, the NDCS have helped us open doors again.They are a pathway to a community of people who absolutely get it. And when it feels like doors are closing again, they are there, shining a light when we need it the most, showing us there is a way and helping us show Zachary that anything is possible. [/p][p]Running this marathon is also helping me. Those of you who know me know I worry. A lot. And I have to put all this fret and worry somewhere so I am going to put it all into this. And if you could spare some pennies to help that would be awesome. The world all feels a bit dark right now doesn't it? So let's throw some light on it all. And help those that really need it the most.[/p][p]Thanks gang.[/p][p]Sian[/p][p]xxx[/p]
