Stuart receives treatment from plasma machine funded by charity cycle27.04.2017
We recently had a customer Stuart Ferguson collect his 2015 R1200GSTE Alpine from us and were shocked to hear that in January Stuart was diagnosed with anti GBM disease – a rare life threatening auto immune condition.
As explained in Stuart’s blog: stuartskidneys, “Anti GBM Disease is a rare auto immune condition which suddenly causes the body to create antibodies which attack the lining of the lungs and kidneys and progresses quickly. It’s a life threatening condition which would certainly lead to death if not treated”.
As a result of Stuart’s illness, he’s spent a lot of his time connected to the Northampton General Hospital's plasma exchange machine which was funded by Wollaston’s cycle ride from Munich to Wollaston.
The team at Wollaston were touched by Stuart’s story. We are so pleased that the machine is having a great impact on the lives of Stuart and others with such terrible illnesses.
Stuart is now fund raising for Kidney Research UK who fund and deliver ground-breaking research to develop treatment and save lives. Stuart has raised almost £2,000 so far! Congratulations Stuart!
Stuart has been on one epic journey this year but is now getting back to his normal life and says "Things are getting much better for me and I'm already having lots of fun making use of the good April Weather on the new bike and loving it!"
We wish Stuart all the best with his recovery and lots of blissful rides on his new bike!
