My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][quote] [p][url=x-apple-data-detectors:/6]On Sunday 23 April 2017[/url], I will be running the London Marathon as part of Team Tommy for Fight for Sight’s Tommy Salisbury Fund.  In 2005 Tommy Salisbury (now aged 16) was diagnosed with a rare eye condition called Choroideremia his parents Emma and Paul have been tirelessly raising money for research into this genetic condition since then.   It is now my turn to help them in achieving their ultimate goal of finding a cure or treatment and saving Tommy’s sight.  Tommy is doing really well and his last few hospital appointments have shown only a slight change in his vision, but time is ticking by, and as parents we know that like Emma and Paul we would do everything in our power to change this if it was our child.[/p] [p]Choroideremia is a genetic eye disorder that causes progressive sight loss, it starts with night blindness during your teens which progresses to tunnel vision and blindness 20 to 30 years after the onset.[i]  Thanks to the Tommy Salisbury Fund research into new treatments for Choroideremia has been greatly enhanced.  As a result of their funding the world’s first clinical trial took place in October 2011, this has been a massive success.  So far around 20 men have had this treatment and the progression of the condition has stopped in the treated eye.  It is now only a couple of years away before it will be ready for Tommy.[/i][i][b] [/b][/i][/p] [p]Since setting up the Tommy Salisbury Fund they have raised approximately £512,000 for research into Choroideremia.  There is still work to be done and funds are needed in helping the surgeons getting this treatment passed by the Department of Health and it being ready of Tommy and other sufferers.[/p] [/quote]   [p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
