Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

My eldest daughter Megan has an autoimmune condition called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD), it is quite rare and has symptoms of various conditions such as Lupus, Arthritis, Scleroderma and Raynauds.

As such there is no UK charity that directly funds research into MCTD, so when my partner Elizabeth and niece Jessica agreed to run a half marathon to raise funds and awareness they found it difficult to choose a charity, but eventually they decided on the Raynauds and Scleroderma Association (RSA) as Megan does persistently get bothered by attacks of Raynauds phenomenon in her fingers.

I know there are lots of worthy charities out there, but if you are able to make a donation for this less well known condition please follow the link to this Just Giving page, Thank you.
