Story

Hi!

On Saturday 23rd September I will be taking part in the Inflatable Norwich (Norfolk) 5K obstacle run, hoping to raise funds for the ME Association.

“I miss that my Mum isn’t able to do so much anymore. We used to do lots as a family but now it’s usually me and my Dad that get to enjoy fun things together. It makes me sad that my Mum has to spent so much time in bed and resting, I miss the fun things with her.”

In support of all suffering from ME and their families, including mine. ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy), or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, blights the lives of 250,000 people in UK today. With no known cure, more hope is needed.

The smallest exertion can floor them; their joints and muscles ache unbearably; restful sleep eludes them; and ‘brain fog’ clouds their thinking. It changes lives drastically – disrupting study; making work impossible; and straining family relations to breaking point. Many sufferers, including my Mum cannot leave their homes.

Your help will mean that more support can be given to people with ME/CFS.

•Increase awareness and understanding.

•Keep more healthcare professionals informed.

•Invest in more biomedical research. Improve more health & social care services.

•Provide more information.

•Campaign more effectively.

Please help me to help my Mum, the many others suffering and their families by making a donation.

Thank you,

Evie-Mae 😊
