Hi my name is Laura Morton

I have been given the privilege of a place in the London Marathon virtual event, raising money for the TOFs charity.  On Sunday 4th October I will be running 26.2 miles with the support of the London marathon app to record and track my progress.

TOFS is short for Tracheo-Oesophageal-Fistula it is a condition where babies are born with their oesophagus not connected to their stomach, they require an operation as soon as they are born to repair and join the oesophagus.  Most children are repaired but never cured, so it’s a lifelong condition.

My son Harry was born with TOF and me and my partner had never heard of this condition before.  Luckily, there was information from the TOF charity that educated and supported us through difficult times.  The condition is a lifelong problem which can lead to different obstacles throughout their lives.

Due to Covid-19 all charities are struggling so any donations will be very much appreciated.
