We are the only UK charity focused on providing transformational patient treatment and care for people with CFS/M.E. Patron Dr Mike Cheshire, Clinical Vice President of the Royal College of Physicians 2007-10, confirms, ‘Sadly CFS/ME does tend to fall through the net- with many patients receiving neither the diagnosis, support nor the information they need. I am delighted to support the M.E. Trust in its aim to transform the lives of those affected by CFS/ME.’
This morning I completed 4 laps of my village green is in Theydon Bois, Essex. The green is divided into two halves – I have walked round the half with the duckpond. This is a huge achievement for me as each lap is around 800 metres (half a mile). Considering that this time last year I was bedbound with M.E. (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), this is an amazing recovery – thanks to all the care and expertise at Burrswood Hospital. Please donate to my walk and help the M.E.Trust to make a difference to the lives of others with CFS/M.E. My donation page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/FelicityCox
“A new start for M.E.” is our new fundraising campaign which supports our vision to make the highest levels of clinical and compassionate care available to people with CFS/ME. We are already funding life transforming care and aim to create a CFS/ME Centre of Excellence, the first of it’s kind in the UK. The centre will offer a deep understanding of the illness and care for the person in body, mind and spirit. If you would like to support this landmark campaign or get involved with the work of the M.E. Trust, please contact us.
