I'm about to "reconcile" the PCRG group entry. I will publish a list on Wednesday noting all who paid entry directly to myself.
It's time to "embrace" our 2014 Charity. All PCRG members can help raise funds regardless of whether you're running at the Coast.
I'm well aware that the majority of group members enjoy helping an "individual". With this in mind (and in consultation with group members) I'm please to announce we will be "Creating a bluer Sky" for "William Turner".
William's Mother (Louise) is my cousin. I have toyed with putting William forward as a recipient for a number of years & now believe the time has arrived. Louise is a courageous soul and more than deserving of such support.
William Turner is 13 years old. William was born prematurely and suffered cerebral bleed to the brain as well as hydrocephalus and also diagnosed with Lennox gastaut syndrome. At 6 months of age William had his first epileptic seizure & to this day can have up to (and over) 200 seizures/day. William is completely non verbal, still in nappies, cannot bath or feed himself and requires permanent one on one care due to the unpredictable seizures that can cause horrific injuries. Medication includes a cocktail of anti epileptic medication, resulting in William feeling quite numb and lacking energy.
As William grows taller and heavier he becomes harder to manage. Louise (Williams Mother/single Mum) has a wish list which includes a hoist (to help lift William) and multiple therapies.
