Church Charity

Nicola was born in Nov 2004 and over the first year of her life the only "milestone" that she reached was to sit up on her own. She couldn't lift her head when on her front, roll, crawl or even weight-bear and if a toy was out of reach she just fell face down and wasn't able to pull herself back up.

We went to our GP, just after Nicola was a year old, hoping to be told that it would be just a bit of physio that she needed to be able to move and this is where the ball starting rollling. In June 2006, 3 weeks before Fraser was born, we met the neurologist at Yorkhill and blood tests were taken. We were told that Nicola had Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, but they could not tell us what type. With congenital muscular dystrophy there is a 1 in4 chance in every pregnancy that the baby will have the condition so there was a chance that Fraser may have be born with the conditon also.

In order to find out which type of CMD Nicola had there were many blood tests taken and she also had a muscle biopsy just after her 2nd birthday. It wasn't until Feburary 2012, just after our youngest, Ross, was born when we received a phone call to confirm that Nicola has ISPD CMD, a relatively new type and if it hadn't been funds for the research from Muscular Dystrophy UK this search would still be ongoing.

That is why we have set up a Family Fund, not only do we want to ensure that research continues for Nicola and other children like her, we want to raise awareness, support and hope because without this their lives will not reach their full potenital.

Our aim is to raise as much money as possible for ISPD Congenital Muscular Dystrophy but have fun while doing so.

Our partnership with the Parish Church in Ekwendeni has led to group visits to and from Malawi over the past few years and has led to a twinning being established between Williamwood High School in East Renfrewshire and the local Secondary School in Ekwendeni.
