We fund pioneering research currently being conducted in the Queen's Medical Research Institute in Edinburgh in the field of Paediatric Endicrinology and genetics.
Ragdolls UK is a charity that is very close to my heart. As a sufferer of Turner's Syndrome I was told in childhood that I
would have to attend a special needs school. Many Turner's girls are still being told this and the information they are
being given isn't entirely accurate. Ragdolls UK aims to support suffers of any Genetic Disorder and help them find
information on how to live as full a life as they can.
Ragdolls UK doesn't just stop at Turner's; they also aid sufferers of Down's Syndrome and Cystic Fibrosis amongst many
Every week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and two sufferers die. However, more than half of the population
of those with Cystic Fibrosis will live past 41 and with improved care and treatments a baby born today could live even
longer! This will only be possible through continued support into the research of these conditions.
Proceeds from sales of Vivika Widow novels will help continue our cause. The money raised will help get new research
projects going in Edinburgh Queen's Research Institute, Glasgow University and Dundee.
Ragdolls aims to:
- To promote the understanding, treatment and support available for children and young adults suffering from genetic disorders.
