"....doctors do not treat us and science does not study us. How could a disease this common and this devastating have been forgotten by medicine?" Jennifer BreaME Research UK believes that only biomedical research can find the causes of ME/CFS, improve diagnosis and treatment, and, ultimately, arrive at a cure. That’s why research is our focus. We've awarded 43 grants since 2000 and invested over £1.4 million. But research is expensive and becoming more so every day. That’s the challenge we face, and that’s why we need your help.
Joe is going to be walking 7 miles with other Cubs as part of the District Jamboree on the Trail event on 12th May which is also ME Awareness Day. His Mum, Sonia, has had ME for nearly 8 years so Joe wanted to use the occasion to raise money for ME Research UK.
