My story

[p]Following some gentle persuasion by Isaac here we are raising money for The Simone Cowland Trust. I have seen via the biennial fundraising evenings how much effort goes into raising awareness and much needed funding for the charity so I am doing my small bit to help. Visiting the Foulis Ward at the Royal Brompton and having sat through a presentation on the work being done to improve the lives of those with Cystic Fibrosis, where enormous progress has been made utilising the latest technologies but funding is key to further progress and this is where we come in. [/p][p]SCT was founded in 2006 to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers in memory of Simone Cowland, who tragically lost her battle with CF aged 36. To date, we have raised over £1,000,000 for CF sufferers and their families.[/p][p]Simone was a devoted wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, friend and a very proud aunty. Born with CF in February 1969 she very quickly learnt that her life was not to be strictly typical but she carried out her daily routines of physiotherapy and medication with both discipline and enthusiasm.[/p][p]Determined not to let the disease beat her, Simone did all the things a teenager and young woman dreams of doing, including finding a job, having a wonderful social life, going horse riding and even getting married at the age of 21 to Brian. On her wedding day, she channeled Princess Diana perfectly with an enormous dress, full length veil and 9 bridesmaids!![/p][p]Simone graciously accepted the hand that life had dealt her and battled on for 36 years until sadly a serious infection took her life within 2 weeks.[/p][p]Before she died, Simone spent a great deal of her time on the Foulis ward at the Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea. She was amazed and humbled by the staff there and how well they cared for her and her fellow sufferers. But like most hospital wards, facilities were tight and essential equipment sometimes hard to come by. Simone often discussed the need for help on the ward to make the stay in hospital a little easier. And so the SCT was born after her death.[/p][p]Simone, like other CF sufferers, was an inspirational person. She was born knowing she would die young and she fought every day to make sure life was as full and wonderful as possible. She radiated love and was the epitome of sunshine on a rainy day. Her infectious laugh and smile will never be forgotten. [/p][p]Please [b][u]DONATE[/u][/b] today and make a difference.[/p]
