Text TOFS18 £10 to 70070 to sponsor Philippa now   or visit Pippa's Mydonate page 'Hi. I’m Pippa from Yorkshire, mummy to my 9 year old TOF son Isaac. Isaac was born with VACTERL and has had over 20 operations. Isaac loves sports,  in particularly running. When he was only 4 years old, he ran his first mini Great North Run, raising money for TOFS.  Despite the medical procedures that he has to go through daily, he has always remained very active, and 18 months ago encouraged me to put my trainers on and run! The London Marathon is going to be a massive challenge for me, I have never run that far before (and probably won’t ever run that far again!) but it is nothing in comparison to the challenges our TOF children face.  TOFS have always been a great support to our family, from the information leaflets that we have been able to hand out at school, to the online community where we can share experiences and gain invaluable information.   Somehow I will cross that finish line in April, even if I have to crawl, and I hope to help raise awareness and much needed funds for TOFS.'
