Medical professionals need to accept M.E.
Kay Gilderdale, whose daughter Lynn had severe M.E., talks about coping with the illness. "We need good research and all medical professionals to accept the illness for what it is," she says. Action for M.E. is raising funds to set up a biobank for M.E. research, says Chief Executive Sir Peter Spencer, while the lack of diagnostic test and ready cure contributes to misunderstanding around M.E.

Raising awareness of M.E.
Julia Haggis was diagnosed with M.E. nearly 20 years ago, and her symptoms include severe muscle pain, nausea and chronic fatigue. She will take part in a paddle board challenge from Sheerness to Shellness to raise awareness of M.E., and also in memory of her dad who died from leukemia.
