Hello everybody. I hope you are all keeping well. I'm running the
Belfast Marathon on 5th May for Huntington's Disease. 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
