Amy Nicholson's Great North Run for FMA UK

Amy Nicholson will run the SimplyHealth Great North Run on the 9th September for FMA UK this year because her mum and her partner live with fibromyalgia. Amy told us why she is doing it: ‘’I really don't know what I have let myself in for but after been a keen spectator for many years (with a beer in my hand) I have always found the atmosphere amazing! Firstly I am just doing it for a bit of a laugh as at the minute I couldn't run to the shop!

Secondly and on a more serious note, to it, it would be a pleasure to run on behalf of every single person that suffers from Fibromyalgia! Something that is very close to home for me! After watching my amazing Mama Bear Sue and beautiful partner Louise go through months/years suffering from an illness that went undiagnosed, being mistreated for conditions they didn't have until they finally got correctly diagnosed!

Even after the diagnosis, I still don't think they are getting the appropriate help they both need! Endless amounts of different medications that don't work! I think this is because so many people/professionals don't really understand the daily struggles of a person suffering from Fibromyalgia, not only physically but most of all mentally! 

I am far from an expert and learn more and more about Fibromyalgia everyday, this is the reason for my fundraising as I would love to help raise awareness! Any money raised will be donated to Fibromyalgia Action UK!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my page and if you have kindly donated then on behalf on every person with Fibromyalgia. A very big THANK YOU!’’
