Keith has struggled with Paget’s disease for a number of years and has been unfortunate enough to suffer complications, which led to surgery on his femur (thigh bone), to repair a fracture. Keith endured several months when he could not put weight on his right leg. He also has osteoarthritis and the effects of both this and Paget’s disease meant that ten years ago he had to give up playing the sport he loves - golf.
A decade on, following several operations including two hip replacements, Keith finally felt able to attempt his first round of golf. For this significant achievement to mean even more, he decided to put his efforts to good use and raise funds for the Paget’s Association, who had supported him through his problems. The first x-ray below shows his fracture and the second his repair and later on his hip replacement.
We are pleased to report that, on the 20th March, Keith will play 18 holes of golf at Sleaford Golf Club. Keith said “It’s been ten long years but finally I want to achieve my goal of getting back to playing golf. It'll be just magic."
