“Lets Make Jeunes Known”

From our Facebook page.

Hello from here at Foundation HQ- this weekend supporters of the charity Royston Hall and Oliver Merchant got married and kindly asked for donations to the Jeune Syndrome Foundation rather than wedding presents

So far we’ve raised £750! And we’d like to say a big thank you to all the donors and congratulations to the happy couple. Remember if you’d like to donate you can always do this through our website every little helps us ‘make Jeune’s known’

Dear Jeune syndrome

I don’t know whether you realise but yesterday I turned 30. That’s right 30 years I have been living alongside you and trying to stay afloat from all the crap you throw at me and my loved ones. And it turns out that I’m blessed with having a lot of loved ones. I had a surprise party and more cards and well wishes then I could ever dream of.

Yes today I’m exhausted and they’ll be times I still hate you with a passion but mostly right now I’m still beating you and I’ll continue to try and beat you not for me but for all the Jeune people to come.

Jeune you’re a hard friend to have but I’m even harder, so get your game face on cause I’m not done with you yet

Happy 30th old friend - see you next year
