My story

[p]In memory of my younger sister, Androula, I will be running in the London 2021 marathon. Devastatingly, at just 6 weeks old she passed away as a result of a neural tube defect. Androula was the youngest of four siblings. Our family was left heart broken over her loss. Decades later, advances in care have led to the improved survivability of infants born with neural tube defects. Modern medicine has discovered that management over infant transition from hospital to home can be the difference between life and death for these children.[/p][p]Androula was diagnosed with Spina Bifida, a disorder involving incomplete development of the brain and spinal cord. Children born with this condition are likely to develop serious neurological and physical disabilities and need continued support throughout their lives.[/p][p]Over 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness or exceptional health needs across the UK. I will be running the London Marathon for Well Child, a charity dedicated to supporting a family’s transition from the hospital to home. Many of these children spend months, even years in hospital because there is no support enabling them to leave. [/p][p]If my sister had survived, she would have needed a significant degree of support in order to live at home. Well Child gives families this opportunity, having support and community resources help increase confidence in managing children with severe disabilities, enhance quality of life and assist in meeting the needs of all family members. With the correct emotional and physical support; equipment and treatments, these children are able to not only survive, but can go on to do some incredible things with their lives.[/p][p]Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will make a significant impact to children living with such severe disabilities. Thank you for your support. [/p]
