I have spent the past 32 years researching into the cause, diagnosis and treatment of the condition known as ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This is now much in the news with Long COVID being a form of ME.
To donate to my fundraising challenge is online . Here’s a link to the page so that you can share it: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RaymondPerrin
For the past year I have been busy planning a new NHS research project which hopefully will be starting soon into Long COVID. I am concerned in helping build up future funds as the 50K funding for this project all comes from the FORME charity that is only able to give due to the generosity of grateful patients and their friends and family. I try my best occasionally to raise something for the pot and what better way than trying to be healthier at the same time.
With that in mind I have embarked on a weight loss challenge to lose 2 stone from 11th April to June 30th 2021 i.e. in 80 days. The money raised will support the FORME trust which is the main contributor for our research work plus this year I will also be raising money for Motor Neurone Disease which unfortunately hit my uncle who died at only 50 shortly after I qualified as an osteopath in the 1980s.
Thank you for your generosity
