Gosberton mum's charity run to help send a UK doctor to America for specialist training
A mum of five is taking on a charity run to raise funds to send a UK doctor to an American conference focussing on the genetic condition affecting her son.
Lisa Smith (37), of Gosberton, is part of the eight-strong Childhood Tumour Trust (CTT) team taking on the ASICS London 10k in July, seeking to raise £4,000 to send a doctor from the UK to the Neurofibromatosis conference in the USA for specialist training.
Lisa’s eldest son Daniel Barnes (12) suffers from the condition – known as NF1 – which has caused growths on his brain and skin and may cause them along his nerves too. The disease can also lead to problems with the bones, eyes and nervous system.
