Tony Fyer and Julie Byron of the Salford and Trafford ME Group (SATMEG) are walking around Chorlton Water Park for May ME awareness and raising funds for Invest in ME Research.
They would love other people to join them on their walk, so please do get in touch if you live in, or know someone who lives in, the Manchester area and would like to be involved. Julie wrote:
Both myself and my son Joe suffer with ME which has robbed us of my job and Joe’s school life. There is no effective treatment for ME and a complete lack of understanding of the condition.
We are hoping that research will lead to greater understanding, treatments and ultimately a cure so we and the 250,000 others struggling to live with ME can claim their lives back.
David, I and the dogs are walking around Chorlton Water Park, this is a relatively short walk but my ME means I’ll need to rest along the way – for many this is an easy walk but for me it will be a challenge.
We’re hoping to be joined by others in the Manchester area to raise awareness as well as much needed funds.
