He’s 70 years ald, an age when many people are slowing down, but not Graeme Souness, a former Liverpool and Scottish International soccer star. He’s just completed a swim across the English channel to raise money for a teenage girl who is suffering from a rare skin condition.
14-year-old Isla Grist has a rare condition causing her skin to tear or blister at the slightest touch.
Souness’ overall goal was to raise more than $1-mllion for the charity which supports Isla and about 5,000 others in the UK who currently live with the genetic condition.
There is no cure although mild forms may improve with age.
