Zoe was very lucky to receive a diagnosis for her condition and that was both thanks to an amazing Paediatric Consultant and the work that the ADSHG does with regards to promoting awareness amongst medical practitioners. This disease is rare and even more so amongst children therefore we feel very luck whilst others have been less fortunate.

As Zoe is so young we are very interested in advancing medication and technology to support the disease in the hope that Zoe and others will be able to live comfortably with Addison's disease and that she does not have to live in fear of adrenal crisis.

Zoe is keen to celebrate the anniversary of her diagnosis as a turning point in her life and to give something back for the amazing support we have had from all of our family, friends, hospital staff and not least the ADSHG.
