Every year an event called Millions Missing takes place in Countries across the world to raise awareness of ME and to help make the invisible, visible. People with severe ME are often forgotten because we are hidden away in darkened rooms, too sick to leave the house. Each pair of shoes displayed represents one person who is ‘Missing’ from the world due to this debilitating illness.
Millions Missing is staged on International ME Awareness Day – the 12th May. I’m not well enough to attend myself but I will be sending a pair of my shoes with a description about my struggles with ME. Do you want to take part and help me raise awareness? There are many ways you can get involved.
- Attend an event (please click to find your nearest event https://millionsmissing.meaction.net/)
