In Loving Memory of Robert Courtney (Bob)

“To raise money for Rob’s chosen charity because he fought and lost a 13 year battle with M.E.”

Robert Courtney (1969 – 2018)

We were devastated to hear of the lovely Bob’s passing and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends and all whose lives he touched.

Bob was a long term supporter of Invest in ME Research and also kindly supported our patient-driven campaign to help raise awareness of the charity’s work to establish a UK Centre of Excellence for ME and to help raise funds for their programme of biomedical research to establish tests and treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).

Bob’s sister Vicki Clark has kindly created a fundraising page for Invest in ME Research as one of his chosen charities:

This appeal is to raise funds for the charity UK Invest in ME serving patients who suffer from M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis)

The appeal is in loving memory of Robert Courtney, an internationally recognised patient campaigner, dedicated to his family and friends. Also known as ‘Bob’, ‘BobBob’, ‘Rob’ and ‘Uncle Bobble’.

Robert was tragically taken from us on 7th March 2018, having lost his battle with M.E.and having struggled against several serious related conditions. M.E. is an illness that is still under-researched, has no treatment or cure and which influential sections of the medical profession still frame only as a state of mind, rejecting physical causes.

Robert touched the lives of so many over his 48 years with kindness and love, whether among his family and friends or his dedication to the quest for a cure ME, a debilitating condition he lived with for the last 13 years of his life and which left him bed-bound in his final years.
