We fund biomedical research into ME to create a strategy for cure/treatment


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I suffer from M.E., a devastating chronic illness that can hit anyone at anytime, both young and old. It is estimated that between 250,000 and 600,000 people in the UK alone have M.E.

I've had M.E. since 2006, and whilst I've recovered sufficiently to be able to keep working, I still suffer from a whole range of symptoms on a daily basis. Those worst affected (25%) are house-bound or bed-bound with severe symptoms.

We still understand very little about what causes this condition or how to treat it, and are in desperate need of funding into research and treatments.

Unable to take part in fun-runs, marathons, swimathons and other common ways to raise money, a group of us are instead doing something we can all join in and do; we are becoming princesses for the day to coincide with M.E awareness week (11-17 May 2014).

We want to try and raise as much money as possible to fund research into M.E. Please give what you can to help find some relief for sufferers and their carers.

Thank you :) x
