As some of you will know I suffer from a chronic illness called M.E a
neurological illness that has dramatically changed my life.
This year I am joining The Princesses and M.E, a group of M.E patients
and supporters that are hoping to raise awareness of M.E and fundraise
for the charities that do such a great job in supporting patients and
those close to them. On May 12th, M.E awareness day myself and other
sufferers will be dressing as Princesses and hoping for a fairy tale.
Our ultimate fairy tale would be finding a cure for this illness
that has locked us away from the world. That would be an absolute dream
come true. However to do that we need to raise as much awareness as
possible, educating everyone about the true nature of this illness and
the disabling nature it can have on the lives of sufferers and those
closest to them. There are more than 250,000 diagnosed cases in the UK
alone. 250,000 lives that have been altered drastically and 250,000 who
are waiting for an effective treatment, better consistency of
information from health care professionals worldwide and of course the
chance of a cure to come charging our way.
This year I am fundraising for Invest in ME I
chose this charity because of the great work they do to support M.E
sufferers and raise awareness. They are a voice for the vulnerable in a
world of much misunderstanding and prejudice against M.E patients. They are funding research into the cause of M.E, in order to find the cure.
