Jade's walk from Bristol to Wales in support of FMA UK

Jade Pierce will be walking from Bristol to North Wales to raise awareness and funds for FMA UK. Jade said: ''I'm going to be walking from Bristol to Dolgellau, North Wales - my home town, this September! Over 150 miles and 14 days camping, this is a mega challenge for anyone let alone for me who suffers with this awful invisible illness 

but I am fortunate; I'm in recovery through nutrition, herbal medicine, exercise and meditation. However, I am terrified and excited by this trip! I may have a flare up along the way or migraines may strike, please forgive me if I am forced to stop. 

Those who know me will remember me a shadow of myself, unable to dress or feed myself due to crippling pain and chronic fatigue, much of my adult life has been overshadowed by this illness, unable to work or play. Doctors, Government and employers unsupportive, often turning me away when I desperately needed support. Health professionals telling me to go away and stop wasting their time! 8 years I was ignored until diagnosed by a locum Doctor; awareness needs to be raised amongst health professionals for early diagnoses and support. 

Now that I am feeling stronger I want to help raise awareness and funds for research into this gruelling illness, raise money to support those suffering in silence and to give hope, hope that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, this is my war cry! Keep fighting your fibro! The darkest hour comes just before the dawn! 

Thank you to all of my family and friends for helping me through my illness xxx''.
