Chris Landa-Font, our R&D manager is raising money for a wonderful cause – Muscular Dystrophy UK. Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions. He has vowed to shave his beard off for this cause, as his daughter suffers with this very rare condition. So far Chris and his family have raised a fantastic £1000! Any donations, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Chris: “I seem to have grown a rather long beard by mistake. My son had a great idea that I should shave it off for charity and we all agreed. My daughter has a very rare condition called Juvenile Dermatomyositis (It’s taken us 3 years to pronounce this correctly) It’s a very little understood condition that affects 2-3 children per million.”
Message from my daughter: “I would love it if you could help us achieve our goal. The hospitals I go to are great, however a cure would be fandabydosy because I hate the treatment.”
