I'm Mum to 3 year old Thomas and 6 month old Iris.  When Iris was 12 days old, she was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism and we discovered that she was born without a thyroid.  We are very lucky for the early diagnosis and that her condition is treatable with medication (which she'll take for the rest of her life - without treatment she'd be likely to have impaired physical and mental development).  I wanted to raise money for the British Thyroid Foundation, who provide information about thyroid problems and support for people who suffer from these conditions and their families.  A 10k run will also force me to dig out my running shoes and attempt to lose my mummy tummy.   My husband Simon will be left holding the babies while I train.  Wish me luck!
