Enjoy reading Dawne's contribution Correfoc here.
Dawne always expected to end up living amongst the vineyards in France. As it happens, she has ended up amongst the vineyards of Mallorca, at least some of the time.
Despite suffering life threatening blood clots in her 20s, her lifelong passion for travel has taken her across the world, (to places as far apart as Patagonia, Alaska and Morocco) both on holidays and for work.
Dawne discovered THROMBOSIS UK in 2012 and decided to raise funds for the charity by undertaking a trek across the Sahara Desert. A step too far? It was certainly outside of her comfort zone.
Her aim was to raise funds for their work in education, research and support and this is still a major priority as she continues to raise awareness about blood clots. Dawne has inherited a genetic mutation which makes her predisposed to thrombosis, affecting her life on a daily basis.
‘TREKKER GIRL MOROCCO BOUND’ is her first published book, describing some of the trauma she suffered after losing her father to a clot and her own dramatic experience aged only 26. The unexpected rekindling of a teenage friendship is an underlying theme to the story, both prior to and during the trek. This book will have you laughing and crying at her antics as you join Dawne on her journey.
All royalties are donated to THROMBOSIS UK.
Dawne still travels widely, along with finding the time to cram in as many other experiences as possible, including concerts, festivals and radio presenting.
