Donations Update

img_3564And I couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Every November, I add up all the donations which our Members have generously made throughout the past year and I match them.

This year’s donation has had a great impact on The ME Association as they’ve sent us this Thank You.

Hello Lynne and Vegepa Club Members,

Thank you very much for your very generous donation, on behalf of all your Vegepa Club Members both in the UK and abroad, to the work of The ME Association.

It will be used to further our essential work – in campaigning, in support for people with ME and in funding vital biomedical research. There’s still so much more to do and we won’t stop until a cure is found.

One day we will understand ME and because of your help, that day will now come sooner.

You and your Vegepa Club numbers are just fab.

Your donation means that we have achieved over 25% of target of our £50,000 Christmas Appeal in just 12 days!!

Best wishes

Make ME Better! appeal

Our Make ME Better campaign aims to raise £50,000 to fund scientific research which we hope could lead to a breakthrough in diagnosis and treatment of ME/CFS.

Led by Dr Karl Morten, scientists from the University of Oxford and Newcastle University wish to spend 12 months analysing nearly 300 blood samples, looking at metabolomics – chemical clues that are left behind after changes in cells. Put simply, they’re on the hunt for a smoking gun.

The British research will pick up the gauntlet of the groundbreaking Naviaux study released by the University of California earlier this year, which suggested that ME/CFS could be the body going into a state of semi-hibernation.

Dr Morten will be working alongside Dr James McCullagh, Associate Professor in Mass Spectrometry at the University of Oxford, and Professor Julia Newton, Dean for Clinical Medicine at Newcastle University.

Prof James McCullaghMany of the blood samples will come from the ME/CFS Biobank – the first significant time they have been used by external researchers – and will be compared to those from a control group.
