Ann Chambers, whose mother suffers with PMR, has pulled out all the stops to set up a support group in the North West region. The first meeting will be at the Greyhound Hotel in Leigh, on Tuesday 5th March at 2pm. If you are local to the North West or North Wales and would like more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are Ann and Kate meeting Andy Burnham MP, the member of Parliament for Leigh, at his surgery yesterday afternoon. Andy, who serves as Shadow Health Secretary, was extremely interested to hear about PMR and GCA and particularly our work to raise awareness of the symptoms of GCA in order to avoid sight loss.
We are really excited about the new group in the North West as it was a big gap in the support group network. Here's wishing Ann every success!
