Durham Lions Golf for Jade-Aid

Jade and her parents, Tony and Roz, at the event with Durham Lion George O’Donnell. Also in the photo is Shadow, a black Labrador who is being trained to be an ‘assistance’ dog to help her by picking things up and retrieving them for her; also giving Jade companionship during times when things are not so good.

The Durham Lions Annual Charity Golf Competition held at the Houghton Le Spring Golf Club, Copt Hill raised £900.00.  This was dedicated to Jade-Aid, which was set up to support Jade Wormold-Gadd.  She is a local 15 year old girl who suffers with EDS, which is a group of connective tissue disorders producing a number of complex problems affecting many body systems, including the use of collagens.  They would normally provide strength and elasticity to tissues. However, in Jade’s case, they do not function correctly and this allows multiple dislocations to occur at any time.

The condition is so intrusive that, unfortunately, Jade suffered a dislocation of her shoulder whilst the photographs were being taken and could not stay at the event as long as she would have liked. She is now awaiting result from an MRI scan after experiencing problems with her pelvis. Jade knows very well what her many problems are, but she generally manages to remain cheerful and positive in her approach to life.
