Brave or foolhardy?
That is the question Dawne asks herself when she stubbornly pursues her goal of trekking in the Sahara Desert to raise funds for Thrombosis UK.
As she battles excruciating back pain and slogs across the unforgiving desert landscape in boots held together with gaffer tape, will her determination to educate others to the perils of thrombosis drive her to achieve one of the toughest challenges of her life. Or will trekking in the Sahara prove a step too far?
All profits from book sales will be donated to the charity Thrombosis UK which works to educate the public and health professionals to ‘Spot the Clots’. Knowing what to look out for might save your life or that of someone close to you.
Wow, Dawne! What a book. You are rather miraculous that you have survived thrombosis and associated pain at a young age of 26 years. All of that continues to be issues for you, but you prevail! Raising money for Thrombosis UK is great and the ways you two friends did so, was awesome rather from the boot or in a pitch all the while haggling over prices and making sure no sticky hands made off with jewelry and such. Your trek to Morocco took a lot a strength to do, and I’m happy you did it! You prevailed!!! You also taught others about thrombosis and you are helping in saving other’s lives in doing so. Congratulations. Five shiny gold stars!
