My name is Melissa and I have Turner’s Syndrome. This a chromosomal condition that affects 1 in 2,500 girls. I want to be able raise as much money as I possibly can by organising an event that will raise funds for Turner’s Syndrome Support Society and Ragdolls UK and to also raise the awareness of Turner’s Syndrome. I am determined to raise the awareness of Turner syndrome because not even doctors know exactly how to treat the condition and many girls go un-diagnosed.
I was diagnosed at 11 years old after years of my mum telling the doctors that there was something wrong. This was only by chance. I had an allergic reaction whilst under anaesthetic. I was sent to Cardiff for allergy tests and the doctor took one look at me and asked if I had been tested for Turner’s Syndrome.
I was put on growth hormone treatment, causing a variety of problems such a Snapping Hip syndrome and Scoliosis.
The event will be held at Liberty Stadium Swansea. Look out for The Melissa Jayne Charity Gala in October with Jay James and Who’s Molly ? We also have DJ entertainment , buffet, raffle and plenty more going on during the evening. My two very close friends, Sam and Helen are working with me. We hope you all come along to help raise awareness of this disease.
We are also looking for raffle prizes and sponsors for the event so please contact if anyone is able to help TheMelissaJayneCharity@outlook.com
