For the past two years, Joel has been severely unwell with M.E. Although he is slowly recovering, it has a huge impact on our lives every single day. Joel isn't able to work, is often very sensitive to light & sound, struggles with 'brain fog' that stops him thinking clearly, and he suffers with terrible muscle and nerve pain each day.
It's very hard for Joel to go through this, and it's hard for me (Catherine) to see him so unwell. There is still no known cure for M.E. and no real treatment.
We have been so grateful for the support of our family & friends during this time, and we continue to pray that Joel will recover.
We'll be wearing the colour blue and holding a tea party during M.E. Awareness Week 2018, so that we can raise more awareness of this debilitating illness, and raise money for M.E. Association. Their mission is to support people with M.E. and their families through all stages of their illness.
Please help us to reach our goal of raising £200!
