Beauty salon owner's marathon effort after nephew's incurable disease

2 1 0

A beautician will be running a marathon to raise vital funds for charity after seeing her nephew diagnosed with a fatal genetic disease.

Hannah Edwards, of the BeauTea Lounge in Thorpe St Andrew, will be completing her marathon around Norwich on Sunday in aid of Duchenne UK.

Her nephew Leon was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) two-years-ago at the age of five.

This is characterised by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness, starting in early childhood.
