Please Sponsor my mum, Triathlon for Crohns :)
Hello all, I know I'm not a regular poster on here, but I know alot of you are always up for supporting a good cause,
I'm going to ask a serious question here;
How many of you know someone who suffers from Crohns disease?
It's an illness which is overlooked a lot, by doctors, family and friends, people often mistake sufferers for anorexic due to dramatic weight loss and inability to eat, however it shows few signs that aren't generally diagnosed as IBS, but eventually leads to severe effects and possibly death.
To raise awareness the Crohns society charity has been created, to inform doctors and others about the illness, and to support sufferers (myself among them)
This is where my mum comes into this, she's running the Virgin Triathlon, a difficult event for athletes.....and my mum is no athlete! To raise money for the charity, so please, any sponsorship would be very much appreciated!
Please visit her just giving page here and give what you can!
(normal pointless posting service shall be resumed shortly)
Just to make this clear, I have NEVER given to any charities, I barely so much as put the pennys in the pots you get in Mcdonalds ect..
But my Dad has Crohns disease and it affects him everyday and will do for the rest of his life, I can't afford to send a lot but I sent over £5.00, every little helps and all that.
Tell your mum I said good luck and well done!
Having fun, that's what Drifting is all about, keep it that way.
Thankyou, it means alot to get support for it to her and to the charity as it's one that is often overlooked.
Unusual one, but who has Crohn's? Just I knew someone from Nottingham way with it a while ago. She was ok with it then, but it does get worse, and I wondered how she was.
It's actually myself who suffers from crohns, and almost lost my life to it, strangely enough though, the woman across the road has it too, I've met many prople now who have the illness, it's alot more common than most people think.
Hi marcains. I have crohn too so i know what you talk about. It took 6 years to doctors to find out what i had 20 years ago, it's a lot more common today. My sister has it too but it has affected her life a very little bit. I hope you will reach your goal. Good luck!
