Two old school friends are on a mission to raise awareness and money for a “forgotten disease”.
Mair Squire and Melissa Davies met at school in Newcastle Emlyn at the age of 11.
Melissa now lives in Aberystwyth with her son Edwyn Bywood who, at the age of 15, began suffering with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as chronic fatigue syndrome.
Edwyn started suffering in March 2019, and was diagnosed in October.
The main symptom of ME is feeling extremely tired and generally unwell. But other symptoms include sleep problems, muscle and joint pain, headaches, a sore throat, problems thinking, remember and concentrating, flu-like symptoms and heart palpitations.
Mair, who now lives in Gower, decided to fundraise for ME Research UK to help Edwyn, as well as others who suffer with the disease.
