Team story

[p]Please read:[/p][p][br][/p][p]This is Blake Hostick - a perfectly healthy little boy. Sadly, in February 2018, at just 4 years of age, he was Diagnosed with Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy (ANE).[/p][p][br][/p][p]ANE is a very rare form of brain damage. It starts with small symptoms such as a fever, coughing and vomiting, then progresses to seizures, excruciating muscle pain, severe muscle weakness and the inability to speak.[/p][p][br][/p][p]With only 150 cases documented and only 30% survival and 10% recovery rate, it really is a heartbreaking illness.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Sadly, due to the rare number of cases, there is no cure for ANE. The only support Blake's family can offer is trying to ease his symptoms. Unfortunately, this doesn’t come cheap.[/p][p][br][/p][p]In aid of Blake, Myself (Ashley Buck), Ryan Williams, George Grassby, Rich Ashbridge, Brett Gallagher, Wayne Stewart, Danny Fieldhouse & Ricci Hunter are joining forces to run the Leeds Half Marathon on May 10th 2020.[/p][p][br][/p][p]We are trying to raise a total of £4000 to help the amazing charity 'Life for a Kid' fund a Mollii suit, which will generate a small electrical current to reduce spasticity in Blakes's muscles which will reduce his pain and help him to both sleep and move a little more easily.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Please donate what you can to help Blake ❤[/p]
