Our Maddy died from Cystic Fibrosis a few days after I decided to walk the Camino. Now I'm walking for a cure.

The Camino is for many a pilgrimage. It is a journey across Spain for eight hundred kilometres to the Cathedral at Santiago de Compastella

On average two hundred thousand people walk it every year and have done so for a thousand years.

I had decided to complete this pilgrimage before our granddaughter died from Cystic Fibrosis. It seemed the ideal opportunity to raise awareness for CF and possibly raise money to aid in research for a cure.

Maddy lived every moment to the full, making the most of every opportunity and she was a truly remarkable young lady who had such plans for the future.

I am not asking you to join me on my journey.

I will not ask you to sleep out because the accommodations are all full.

Or ask you to roll your ankle.

Or spend a night in hospital through dehydration

(yes it can happen).

But I will ask you to look at what Cystic Fibrosis does to a child and then choose not to give. I bet you can't! Please give a little.

God bless you for your efforts in this matter.

I will be the one putting one foot in front of the other. By my calculation that could be more than one point six million steps.

Maybe there is a corporation out there that would like to give Cystic Fibrosis/ Cure Kids a dollar per step.

Just a thought!

I too am from Palmy and have also walked the Camino. It is heartening to read about how you have done this for your granddaughter and others who have cystic fibrosis. I had much cooler temperatures for the Pyrenees crossing, thank goodness! Margaret
