Welcome to the Ledderhose disease (plantar fibroma) blog.

My name is Gary and I am the author of this blog. I am a ledderhose patient from the UK. I am an ex-scientist and hold a degree in Molecular Genetics and I try and put this experience to good use exploring this condition.

I have pages here about the treatment options, patient experiences including my own, insights from medical professionals, explanations of the science and whatever else I think may be useful for fellow patients. Through the blog I have made contacts with many patients, professionals and charities and now work as a trustee for the British Dupuytren's Society.

Hopefully you can find the pages you want using the navigation menu above or use the search box to look for specific information.

Hope you enjoy reading the blog and please contact me at ledderhosedisease@gmail.com or leave a message on here to get in touch. All information will be kept private unless you tell me otherwise.

Thank you for visiting.

Running in 2017

2017 is going to be a tough year, I have lots of running planned to raise awareness and hopefully some funds for the British Dupuytren's Society. My wife and I have already been out running a lot and we are currently ahead of target, in my case it is close and will be close over the year but fingers crossed I can at least get close to the goal. 

If you would like to follow that challenge then please see and follow the following blog and if you would like to donate the link for that is also below. Thank you everyone and if anyone out there wants to be interviewed to share their story on the blog then please let me know.
