Since this news item was first posted Fionas son - Stuart (15) who is diagnosed with ADHD and is on a good treatment plan - has said he will be walking with his mum as well. On speaking to the place that Stuart works Fiona was told the following by his boss : "well i would have never known Stuart, as far as I was concerned, and Ihate to use the phrase you were a 'normal' teenager. All I can say is you are a credit to yourself and I hope you are very proud of yourself !" - Also Stuarts boss is going to support both Fiona and Stuart with this as well and as Fiona is speaking to the local press Stuarts boss has agreed also to speak to the press to help put across the positive side of things and how with the correct treatment Stuart is doing fantastic! What a positive media article this could be. Let's just hope that the paper does cover this event and Fiona will be able to share a positive media article with us after her and Stuart have completed the walk.
I am sure that anyone who is able to sponsor and support Fiona will also be pleased to support and sponsor Stuart at the same time, so any messages of support that you would like to send to Stuart as well please add these to the form below and I am sure that this will give huge encouragement to Stuart as well as Fiona.
