I have chosen to run for the British Thyroid Foundation after being diagnosed with an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). This is a condition that affects your whole body and is something that will be with me for the rest of my life.

I am supporting the BTF as they support research into thyroid disease to increase understanding of how it affects the body and how diagnosis and treatment can be improved. They also provide information and a support network to anyone living with a thyroid condition.

For my own future, and those of others, I feel passionate that there needs to be more awareness of thyroid disorders and more research to improve patient outcomes.

I would appreciate any donations that can help towards the BTF's work.

Thank you

Natalie Weeks
