My story

[p]My little girl has chronic lungs and has recurring chest infections. She has been very poorly since early toddlerhood with infections but moreso since January 2017. While we are trying to find a diagnosis and get used to this way of life the British Lung Foundation have been amazing with their help. I have spent many a sleepless night at Hospital wondering what will happen and their website has been a source of comfort and help at a much needed time.[/p][p]I know that I have support on the other end of the phone and that someone will help and understand in a very scary world.[/p][p]I want to help give something back and help little ones and adults suffering with lung conditions and chronic lungs and rare diseases.[/p][p]I am already a member of Aldridge Running Club and I enjoy the headspace and stress relief that running gives me so ive decided to use this to help raise awareness.[/p][p]I will be doing what I can to fundraise, money in a jar for each mile I run, cake sales, raffles and also running races to spread awareness with my British Lung Foundation tops on.[/p][p]My fundraising journey of a year will start at the beginning of June- 1st 2018 and end 30th June 2019, I am aiming big and hope to raise a lot of money.[/p][p]Thank you for all your support and for reading[/p][p]**update**[/p][p]january 2019- this month has seen my little girl get diagnosed with a rare lung disease & even though it at the moment feels devastating we will find our way through this and learn how to deal with all that’s coming our way.[/p][p]again, thank you for your support, I couldn’t do this without you [/p]
