"I got to know Sandra when I was her carer for seven years. Although I don’t care for her any more, we remain good friends, messaging each other and I visit her now and then. Sandra is housebound so she relies on people to help with her meals and general house duties. She always speaks highly of Action for M.E. and how much support she gets from belonging to the charity."
Being a carer for Sandra, who has had severe M.E. for 15 years, inspired our first Fundraiser of the Week for 2018, Hayley Bosley. Having witnessed the devastating effects of the condition, Hayley will run the 2018 London Marathon in April to help us reach more children, families and adults affected by M.E.
"I saw how badly this illness can effect people," she says. "I would like to do this marathon to help people like Sandra."
Sandra will be hand-making and selling cards to support Hayley and her fundraising efforts, and Hayley will be joining a running club "to keep me going!"
We are thrilled that Hayley has reached more than a third of her fundraising target already: you can give it a boost via her Just Giving page, and join us in wishing her best of luck for her London Marathon challenge.
