Good Morning Marg, I would love to go , I think it's on Dec 10th but alas I can not afford the train fare, its almost £ 100 from where I live but I have asked my local MP. I do not know if he's attending as I had no reply.

I hope the meeting goes well, huff :) x


Hufferpuffer, Aww at least the thought is there and thank you for contacting your MP.

This A1AD deficiency is also relevant for Hereditary Spherocytosis patients and there are several members of my family with this disease. 2 have already died from Pneumococal Septicaemia. I also have Primary Biliary Cirrhosis an auto-immune liver disease (PBC). As I am disabled and am also caring for my very sick husband with COPD and Diabetes 2 I will not be able to come to this event in London. PLEASE could you mail me any leaflets writeups information etc? I can email you my address or phone you if I know your contact details. Thanks.
