About

On 20th September of this year it would have been my very courageous friend's 40th Birthday.
Sadly she is no longer here to celebrate this special birthday with us. Lynn (aka Jessie) took her life aged 31 in 2008 after enduring endless suffering from very severe ME since the age of 14. It broke my heart, and many others, the day she died. I think of her all of the time, everything that I achieve whilst being ill however little it is, I always keep her in my thoughts and do it for her too.
To celebrate what would have been her 40th Birthday I asked her Mum, who was Lynn's selfless, dedicated full time carer, if she would mind people donating towards a charity that was close to Jessie's heart in celebration of her first 'big birthday' since she passed away.
I've set up this donation page where money will go to the charity Invest in ME in Jessie's memory, however big or small, I know it's something she would've been thrilled about as raising money and especially awareness was always something she was passionate about. I hope we can raise some funds and I will also be hoping to make it down to her memorial garden in East Sussex to lay some flowers for her too. Thanks for reading.

Thanks for setting this up Becca. We'll always remember her. She should have been here to celebrate, but it's nice to think this helps take us a step closer to the present she wished for for everyone with ME.

It breaks my heart to think of the pain Lynn must've gone through and what pain her mum must still go through daily. I pray for a better future for the rest of us still suffering.

My daughter is 41 and able to live independently after many years bedridden. I wish Lynn and her mother could be celebrating her birthday. Such a beautiful girl. The loss of the life she should have had. We do not forget her.
