Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My daughter has ME / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Lucy is almost 15 years old and hasn't been able to go to school for approaching two years. Lucy has to make decisions every day as to how she will spend her limited energy. She has managed to maintain a more stable position over the last year by limiting what she does and this will give her the best chance of recovery, but there is no medicine or treatment as such, and it is a waiting game. To her credit, Lucy is remarkably resilient, but it is not plain sailing for her or her family. Raising awareness of ME and raising money for the great work of Action for ME helps keep Lucy's spirits high. Please help us support Action for ME's vision of a world without ME.

For my part, I am going to do the Gullane Bay Triathlon. I have been struggling with the open water swimming which is why this sponsorship page is so late but I am getting there (hopefully). It is a standard / Olympic length of 1.5k sea swim, 40k bike ride & 10k run. Think Brownlee brothers at Copacabana beach in Rio except much slower, colder and hopefully less polluted!
