Dear HealthUnlocked friends,
As a charity PMRGCAuk exists to provide support, spread information and awareness, and promote research. Don't we just know that this is one of the most unresearched illnesses you could imagine! For example, for every one study on PMR or GCA there are 20 on Rheumatoid Arthritis (not that I would wish RA on anybody!).
In providing support we really need support from you. If you would join us by becoming a member (£10 a year unwaged, £20 a year waged), you would be helping us a lot and giving yourself a voice in the organisation. Every member gets a vote at general meetings. The membership form can be downloaded at pmrgcauk.com/contact_us.html
We also need to find ways to raise money to keep the charity afloat. Donations can be made online at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/gi... Just enter PMRGCAuk in the charity search box.
If you know anybody who would be interested in undertaking some challenge, like cycling from Lands' End to John O'Groats as Mark Nichols is doing for us, please let us know.
Don't feel that by being part of this community we expect you to make a donation or become a member. That would be completely wrong. You are the people this charity exists for. But if you would like to help we would be so grateful!
