Louise Allen’s daughter Claire suffers from Systemic Sclerosis, Scleroderma, Raynaud’s Phenomenon and Interstitial Lung Disease – of which there is no cure. It is a disease that attacks the internal organs by the hardening of skin around the organs.
She was diagnosed with this condition 17 years ago when she was 10 years old, and her health has deteriorated considerably – so much so that her lungs have been seriously affected - resulting in breathing problems. The illness has also attacked the muscles in her oesophagus to the point where she can no longer swallow solid food, resulting in her having to be fed blended food via a peg feed.
Louise decided to raise funds for research, which one day will find a cure. She ate blended food for one whole month, and Taymer staff sponsored her during this time. She did not waiver in her quest to eat blended food.
We are pleased to say that Louise efforts resulted in Taymer staff sponsoring her to the tune of £480.00 which was sent to Scleroderma & Raynaud’s UK.
Louise gave Maggie a copy of the letter in which they thanked her for all the hard work she put into raising the monies, and a great help towards their research efforts.
Exceptional Louse, well done, we at Taymer are proud of you – we know you are pleased to be eating normally again.
To all Taymer staff, you’re the best, thank you very much for supporting Louise.
