Touching Lives

October 2009

In this issue of Touching Lives, we meet two youngsters who are battling conditions that normally affect adults. Rachel was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 13, and little Alfie has had multiple strokes since he was two-and-a-half. Read their inspirational stories.

We also feature new research projects and fundraising news including our London to Paris bike ride, a party with Paddington and latest initiative Wellies to Work.

March 2009

In this issue of Touching Lives, Lee and Mandy Runciman talk about an Action Medical Research project that’s giving hope to children like their son. Five-year-old Riley suffers from a severe form of cerebral palsy, which means he struggles to control his arm and leg movements, and cannot sit comfortably on a normal chair. We are funding research into a novel seating system that could transform life for children like Riley.

We update you on the charity’s focus on children’s health, which takes us back to our roots, plus all the latest on fundraising and research.

October 2008

In this issue of Touching Lives, we meet Amy Ironmonger who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at 18. She knew little about the condition back then, but is now managing her medication, continuing to work and enjoying a busy social life like her friends. She even finds time to fundraise for more research into the illness.

We report on the discovery that maggots could hold the key to treating superbugs, and bring you up to date on seven more projects we are funding.
