Raising money for
My dad who was an incredible inspirational person was diagnosed with VHL at the age of 13.
VHL is a rare genetics disease causing multiple re-occuring tumours in 10 organs and is caused by a flaw in one gene (the VHL gene). He spent most of his childhood in hosptital for periods as long as 12 months and throughout his life had numerous surgeries in his brain, kidneys, splean and eyes to remove tumours. Each operation with the unknown if he would survive.
My dad truly was known as a special man....a hero in my eyes who always had a smile on his face and would always be helping others.
I have chosen to run the swansea half marathon to raise awarness in his memory as he would have turned 60 this febuary to help towards research to help others live with this disease and hopefully one day find a cure. I have also chosen to do this for personal achievement as 12 months ago i could not run 10 minutes never mind 13 miles!!!!
My son Kyle who is my best friend unfortunately never got chance to meet him but speaks of him like he did and has asked to help so we will also be running the Admiral 3k together in September.
