Rock Around the Midnight Clock
Bridget O'Connor was 60 on New Year's Day and threw a party! Not only did she ask all her guests to donate to Hypopara UK in lieu of presents but she had been having secret singing lessons and performed on the night! You can support Bridget's brave effort at our Bmycharity page here or JustGiving here
Bridget says: 'My reason for doing all this is to give something back after developing hypopara following surgery and having it for the rest of my life. Because the support I received from Hypopara UK was and still is so valuable , learning to be positive living with any chronic long term health condition - YOU ruling it and not letting IT rule you - and leaarning that even having go through throat/neck surgery there is a positive outcome.'
