My story

[p]I am running the Brighton Marathon 2020 for the Pernicious Anaemia Society (PAS) because of the support and work they do for this little understood disease.[/p][p][url=https://pernicious-anaemia-society.org/]https://pernicious-anaemia-society.org/[/url] [/p][p]Pernicious Anaemia is not very well known and does not get headlines in the press like other diseases. So it gets overlooked by many, yet the symptoms can render people unable live a normal life or even work.[/p][p]Many people say they are tired, or they need to get more sleep. But for me I watched my wife Natalie suffer with tiredness, sleeping for long periods, not being able to form sentences or get the words right. Even blacking out in the middle of a car park.[/p][p]For years we just put it down to being busy people with a young family, until it got so bad she was missing out on our young daughters. After many tests and meeting with doctors Natalie finally got diagnosed with PAS and started her B12 injections.[/p][p]She was a changed woman, totally different. Not sleeping all weekend, able to have a conversation and play with the girls. Even within a week she was back to her normal self again.[/p][p]Natalie has to have these B12 injections every 4 weeks and I know when she is getting close to the 4 weeks, as the symptoms start to show by the time we are into week 3. [/p][p] [/p][p]I am hoping that by running this Brighton Marathon for the Pernicious Anaemia Society that it will bring this little known disease out of the shadows and people can learn and start to understand what B12 does for the body and how it can affect people.[/p][p]The correct diagnoses and treatment of my wife’s Pernicious Anaemia has changed our families life forever and given my daughters their mummy back. But for some many people out there it is a different story.[/p][p]Please support me by donating on this page and your money will go to help fund support, help, information and research into this disease and give a normal life back to more families just like us. [/p][p] [/p][p][b]Pernicious Anaemia Society Mission: [/b][/p][p]To secure a full and comprehensive review of the way in which Pernicious Anaemia is diagnosed and treated that will lead to more timely diagnoses and better treatment by: [/p][p]Providing information to patients and health professionals[/p][p]Providing help and support to patients and their families [/p][p]Engaging in research with the health research community [/p][p]Lobbying decision makers[/p][p][url=https://pernicious-anaemia-society.org/]https://pernicious-anaemia-society.org/[/url][/p][p] [/p]
