The world of ME has many hurdles - one of them being isolation for patients.
It is too infrequent an occurrence for friends of someone with ME to stay in contact, let alone actively do something to help.
Many ME patients can feel isolated and abandoned by their friends and even family members.
So we are amazed at the reaction and spirit of a group of four friends who
have visited all 92 English Football League Stadiums in under 92 hours in support of Invest in ME and
in order to raise money and awareness for the Rituximab Trial.
They did this to help their friend who has ME.
The event lasted six days in April 014.
We are really grateful for this group of four who are did
such an amazing job of raising awareness for ME.
Football clubs, hotels, TV companies
helped build huge interest and this positive way of raising awareness and funds for ME
has increased the exposure of the work the charity
is trying to do.
