Matt, Helen, Jake, Phil & Beck Renouf
This is Jake's fundraising page - in 2011 he became ill with a rare neurological condition called KLS, this meant he missed 70% of school in year 9 and 10. He was written off and told he would be lucky to get 5 GCSE's ... he worked hard and got 7!
He did 2 years at 6th form college, and was awarded IT student of the year across the college completing his course with the highest grade possible and was given an unconditional offer to study computing at University.
He still has episodes that cause him to miss chunks of time, but it does not stop him achieving his goal, so during his 4 years at Uni he would like to increase awareness of the condition and raise as much money as possible.
Achieving Goals for KLS patients!
At the start of University, (September 2016) - Jake has had 113 KLS episodes - the longest being 118 days the shortest just 1 day, his longest well spell was this summer when he managed 101 healthy days ... his average gap up to that point between episode was just 9 days!
Jake aims to enjoy university, complete the course and inspire other KLS patients that it is possible to live with KLS and to make a difference, and participate in a number of fundraising events during the course.
Your support and encouragement would be appreciated.
