A close person in my life has been affected severely from M.E affecting my family. I am hoping to run the London Marathon and fundraise with my brother Harry to raise money and awareness of this long term illness.
What is M.E?
"M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems. M.E. affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, and around 17 million people worldwide" (Action for M.E). M.E can affect anyone and is often triggered by a virus, which can cause damage to the central nervous system. Resulting in cell structure damage. There sadly is still no cure for this illness and I hope to raise awareness of the difficulties those affected face each day.
Any donations and support to this cause will be much appreciated.
