My 10 year old son Drew, has severe epilepsy and global development delay (developmentally aged around 6-12 month old).  Despite the challenges faced every day by Drew, everything he achieves - from sitting to standing, to crawling - never fails to amaze and delight us and we appreciate absolutely every single tiny milestone. Drew is a truly amazing young man.
Drew's epilepsy cannot be fixed with medication, so in 2012 Drew started the Ketogenic diet - a special diet for children with difficult to control epilepsy.   Because of the diet his seizures reduced considerably giving him the opportunity learn all the things that you and I take for granted on a daily basis  Things like walking, eating, and talking... 
And now the reason why I am running the 2020 London Marathon....  
I am running it to support The Daisy Garland charity.  This fabulous charity has supported our family throughout our entire keto journey offering invaluable advice and genuine support. As well as funding 22 Daisy Garland keto dietitians to work in NHS hospitals, they also provide life-saving grants for night-time monitors keeping children like Drew safe at night while they sleep.  The Daisy Garland are a charity close to mine and Leila's hearts and every step I run, will be run for Drew, and Daisy.  So please, please, dig deep in your pockets and purses, and help me raise as much as possible for this truly fantastic charity.
Thank you.
