Kids Neurology Dept ARI
Myself and my good friend Katie have decided to run the Baker Hughes 10K to help give back something to The Neurology Department at Aberdeen Children's Hospital.
This department have made a huge difference a special lil boy in my family.. Jack Walker.
The Neurology Dept looks after kids that have Neurological Conditions some of these conditions are life changing and life limiting for both the patient and their families.
Jack started having seizures at 8 months old and on the 3rd January 2013 he was diagnosed with West Syndrome that was the very day our lives fell apart and we knew life would never be the same again for Jack, his sisters and his parents, this syndrome is an rare uncommon Epileptic disorder, unfortunately this disorder is difficult to treat and Jacks Epilepsy has evolved into Lennox Gastuat Syndrome an even more severe Epileptic disorder. Jacks seems to be resistant to all Epilepsy medication and he continues to worry us with seizures.
Jacks consultant Dr Shah whom myself and Katie are raising money for has been amazing he is 100% dedicated to his job and his patients. Jack isn't just a patient he's a little boy that's ill and needs his help. The nurses that work with Dr Shah - Ena Cromar and Jo Campbell have also been amazing they have supported Jacks parents and are always at the end of a phone, these nurses work hard and are also 100% committed.
Every penny we raise will help kids like Jack and help enhance the treatment they get.
All donations are hugely appreciated no matter how big or small every penny helps.
Thanks for all your support,
Leanne & Katie
