Hello everybody. I hope you are all keeping well. As most of you know by now I'm running the Belfast Marathon on 5th May for Huntington's Disease (HD). HD is a cross between Parkinson's, Motor Neuron's and MS. It is an incurable,, genetic, herieditary illiness.
HD runs in my family. My father, my brother and I all have it. I was diagnosed with HD when I was 23. I was married and on my way to being a journalist.
HD changed everything. I seperated from my wife and all hopes of a decent career evapourated. I ended up having a breakdown and tried to commit suicide.
That all happened last May. I have done many positive things since then. I set up a HD website and I set up SHY United.
This May I decided to do something far more positive: run the Belfast marathon with all the money raised going to HD research. It is not for my benefit but for the benifit of the thousand's of others out there.
