Surgery spurs Sport Relief bid for Claudia

Have your say

A determined Nether Heage woman is aiming to overcome her debilitating spine condition to run a mile for Sports Relief.

Claudia Wilson, aged 42, underwent major surgery last year to try to slow down the deterioration of her spinal cord which was equivalent to that of an 80-year-old.

She had a 50/50 chance of the operation being a success - the alternative being life in a wheelchair. Now on the road to recovery she is still experiencing regular pain but is adamant her difficulties will not stop her from completing her sporting challenge on Sunday, March 23.
