Following the death of my dad from an abdominal aortic aneurysm
We are hoping to raise awareness for this specific disease of the aorta, abdominal aortic aneurysm, after the sudden and unexpected loss of my Dad, Kevin Twist.
Our lovely Dad, David, passed away from a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurism and we'd like to raise funds his memory to help the Aortic Centre Trust with the research into the prevention and treatment of this ticking time bomb condition.
This year I have decided to take on the challenge of this walk over the Mendips. This route is particularly apt for me as James was born in Weston and I was born in Frome. Every year since I lost James i take on a challenge to raise money for The Aortic Centre Trust and keep James's memory alive.
Supporting aortic research in my Sons memory
I have chosen to raise money for The Aortic Centre Trust as I wanted to support a charity whose work was close to myheart (pardon the pun!). In 2021, my mother was found to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which has impacted her life significantly up until, thankfully, she under went successful, life saving, surgery before this Christmas just gone.

All donations are made in loving memory of Allan Robert Wilson, to raise funds for detection equipment related to aortic diseases.
Funds raised in memory of Tom Brown will be used by the Aortic Centre Trust to raise awareness of the risks associated with aortic aneurysms, to pursue accessibility to treatments and to fund research into better treatments and prevention.
