Both myself and my son Joe suffer with ME which has robbed us of my job and Joe's school life. There is no effective treatment for ME and a complete lack of understanding of the condition.
We are hoping that research will lead to greater understanding, treatments and ultimately a cure so we and the 250,000 others struggling to live with ME can claim their lives back.
David, I and the dogs are walking around Chorlton Water Park, this is a relatively short walk but my ME means I'll need to rest along the way - for many this is an easy walk but for me it will be a challenge.
We're hoping to be joined by others in the Manchester area to raise awareness as well as much needed funds.
