Last October my big sister Amelie came home from school with what seemed like a bad cold and nearly eight months later she still isn't strong enough to go back to school. She had a horrible virus which left her with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also know as ME). It has taken away her ability to do simple things (like sitting on a chair or going up stairs) and things she loves like music and going out with friends. I miss the times we used to run around together and really hope for her to be better soon.
I am supporting this charity as they NEED to find a way to help this horrible illness go away for my big sister and anyone else who has it, so that they can go back to their normal life again.
