Makayla’s story on JustGiving –

I’ve lost my friends because of M.E, I’ve had to cut my hours down at school, give up my dancing and sport. People say because this illness I’ve lost my childhood as I became ill at 8 years of age yet no one can give me answers as to why I got ill or will I get better because at the moment there are no answers . My hope is that Invest in M.E can give me these answers so that’s why I’m raising money for them.

My family watched me lose so much because this Illness but one thing I didn’t give up was my horses . They are my soul mate, my therapy my enjoymentI didn’t care that after riding them they would make me crash I enjoyed it no I loved it one thing M.E wouldn’t take away from me.

I will be 13 on the 12th Sept it will be 5 yrs in October that I have been ill, but this summer the hospital have said if I can manage and pace myself I can spend extra time with my horse Tommy. So because of this I want to challenge myself and Tommy to jump a 4ft jump… this will be a challenge as I’ve not been jumping for that long and Tommy has had a bit of a rest from jumping but I know we can do it and no better way to challenge myself than raise money for Invest in M.E at the same time.

Please help me to help invest in M.E because this illness can affect anyone at anytime and at any age no matter how fit or active they are M.E doesn’t care but I do I want answers.
