My story

[p]So I entered the ballot for the London Marathon and only went and got in!![/p][p]I want to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK to help find a cure for this awful condition.[/p][p]As many of you may know my son Jacob suffers from Muscular Dystrophy. Jacob was born a happy healthy baby, he learnt to walk before his first birthday and as a child he could walk, run, ride a bike and even roller skate! But he's now 22 years old and spends most of his time in a wheelchair.[/p][p]Jacob didn't show any symptoms of this condition until he was about 10 years when he started to struggle in P.E. at school. Jacob was finally diagnosed when he was nearly 12 with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (type 2E). His condition affects most muscles in his body including his heart.[/p][p]There are many different forms of Muscular Dystrophy, Duchene, Beckers, Limb Girdle to name but a few but currently no cure for any of them, but Muscular Dystrophy UK are working on that.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Please give whatever you can as I train to take part in my first ever Marathon!![/p]
