Campaign: To raise awareness of ME

Since my mum was diagnosed with ME, I’ve seen the impact the condition can have.

It can affect a person’s independence and completing everyday tasks can become more difficult.

Also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, the pain and symptoms experienced by those with myalgic encephalopathy are often hidden, and its challenges are not obvious to those with no knowledge of the illness.

With Fixers, I want to raise awareness of ME.  I want people to better understand the condition so they can offer support to those living with it.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Tim Reynolds Tom Hendryk Ryan Ferrie
Steve Jensen Daniel Kane Samuel Sharp
Chris Hooper Emily Waldron Chloe Barnett
George Thompson Claire Barrett Cheyenne Harris
Connor Moore Charlie Clarke Oliver Warner-Smith
Archie Finlayson Anthony Foruria William Haiu-Thomas
Ben Soutz    

Association of Young People with ME
The team at AYME have supported my Fix. A special thanks to Mary-Jane Willows, Jen Simms and Judy Wise for their advice and help with research for my broadcast film. 

 

Portsmouth CFS Service
Rhona McGurk, Team Leader for Portsmouth CFS Service, supports my project. She agreed to be interviewed to appear in my TV broadcast.

 

Thorngate Halls
Paula and Ricky from Thorngate Halls in Gosport support my Fix. They allowed us to film there on the day of my broadcast shoot.  

 

Thank you also to my mum, Glenda, for sharing her experiences of ME in my broadcast piece.
