In April 2017 my grandson was born with a condition known as long-gap oesophageal atresia. He spent the first 19 months of his life in hospital and underwent many hours of surgery. He is now home and beginning to live a ‘normal’ life, though undoubtedly he will face many hurdles in the future. TOFS is a charity that offers support to children and adults and their families with conditions like my grandson’s. I entered the Great North Run (GNR) 2020 in order to raise money for TOFS. Unfortunately, owing to COVID 19 the GNR has been cancelled. However, on 13th September (the date of the run) I will run the distance for TOFS.

TOFS from TOFS (Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula Support)

TOFS offers support to people born with Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and/or Oesophageal Atresia (OA). These are rare congenital malformaltions of the gullet and windpipe. Immediate neonatal surgery is a treatment, not a complete cure. We are UK-based and receive no public-sector support at all.
