A teenager who has been fighting for treatment after being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) more than a year ago says his life has been turned around after finally been awarded funding.

Robert Hawkins, from Halifax in West Yorkshire, couldn’t go to school, see his friends or play sport after being struck down by the condition which drains him of his energy and stops him living a normal life.

It’s been a very long journey. We are so glad obviously it’s now come to this decision where Robert can now get the treatment he desperately needs in order for him to help get through day to day and for him to get about basically the best way he can.

– Michelle Hawkins, Robert’s Mother
