Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. [/p][p]Early in 2012 Scott and Elaine Jaffray’s daughter Eve, who was only 11 at the time, was diagnosed with a brain tumour.  Eve is a determined, strong young lady who has shown great courage and bravery throughout her treatment over the years.  Sadly in December 2014 the family were given the news that no parents want to hear, the tumour had grown considerably in size and immediate action was required.  Eve was taken into surgery for another major operation, Yorkhill Hospital and the Southern General Hospital took great care of Eve and her family and thankfully after weeks of intensive therapy Eve was back on her feet.  Due to the ongoing issues over the years with her health the hospital decided that the best option for Eve now was to send her to Jacksonville Florida for Proton Therapy.[/p][p]Proton Therapy is a leading edge therapy which targets tumours with high accuracy, allowing for favourable outcomes with a low risk of side effects.[/p][p]Within a matter of 2 weeks it was all arranged, Eve and her mother Elaine flew out to Jacksonville, Florida for proton therapy on 26[sup]th[/sup] January 2015 and are currently staying at Ronald McDonald House.  Ronald McDonald charities proved a “home away from home” for families who utilise hospital and medical facilities. They encourage families to embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy. They makes Eve’s day a little brighter every day she is there, they have so much activities going on that it distracts Eve from her daily treatment.  [/p][p]So the ICT/eHealth department have decided to dust off our trainers again and attempt another charity event to raise as much money as we possibly can for Ronald McDonald House.  This time we will be running a 5k on Saturday 9[sup]th[/sup] May 2015.  So far we have 27 people running so hopefully that means lots of sponsors.[/p][p]I know times are hard for everyone but please give as much as you can, every penny you donate goes directly to the charity to help families like the Jaffray’s. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
