Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page.  A fellow member of the Let's Do It For ME fundraising team for Invest in ME Charity has written this on my behalf as I am too ill to do it myself. I have very severe ME.  I got ME at the age of 8. I am now 24.  Like some other serious illnesses, ME can fluctuate in severity. You can see from the photos in the picture gallery that whenever well enough, I was out being involved and enjoying life to the best of my ability.  

My health took a bad turn for the worse in 2012. I went into hospital and then to a nursing home, fed by naso-jejunum tube.  The staff helped me and my family to celebrate my 21st birthday there by raising awareness and funds for Invest in ME to help them set up a UK centre of excellence for research and hopefully treatment. People like me with ME desperately need this.  

I am being cared for at home now and can listen to audio books for about 15 minutes in the morning and cuddle my guinea pig in the evening. That is all the daily activity I can do with my current level of illness severity.  I am asking you to sponsor me to listen to audio books.  Thank you for helping me to help IiME.
