Kieran suffers from an auto-immune disease of the bile ducts which affects his liver and blood stream, causing fatigue, jaundice and general ill health. It will eventually result in him needing a liver transplant. When his condition worsened in 2012, he was referred to King’s and ended up staying for over a month, and returning frequently due to flare-ups and infections.
After witnessing first hand the amazing work of the hospital staff, Kieran was compelled to raise money for King’s Liver Unit and also raise awareness on the importance of organ donation.
‘I’ve always felt safe in the knowledge that when, ultimately and inevitably, my illness does bring me to the brink, King’s College Hospital and its staff will be there to support me and treat me with the best possible care.’
Kieran kicked off the year with his first 1ok in East Sussex in January and will continue to run 10k for every month of 2016.
We are incredibly proud of Kieran’s determination and we wish him the best in his challenge.
