Amy and Friends

Amy & Friends provide support for the health and well being of sufferers of Cockayne Syndrome and their families and carers. We provide an annual members retreat where families spend time in each other's company and meet leading doctors and researchers. We also provide a family support worker.

Story

Hi, I'm Ella, I am 6 years old and on the 14th December 2012 I was diagnosed with Cockayne Syndrome.

Cockyane Syndrome is a premature ageing syndrome, it is where the DNA can't repair itself. It unfortunately leads to a short life expectancy. My family are utterly devasted and they turned to Amy and Friends who have helped us so much. Amy and Friends are a non-profit organisation that provides support to the CS children and their families and without them we would be lost! 

Raising money for Amy and Friends will fund vital research for a cure for this horrible syndrome that is taking so many children's lives. They also help fund vital equipment for the children.
