Derry City goalkeeper Peter Cherrie’s wife, Justine has FND and we have teamed up with them to help raise awareness for this year’s FND Awareness Day UK.
WHAT IS FND AWARENESS DAY UK?
The 25th of March marks FND Awareness Day in the UK, where charities and groups from across the UK partner up to run campaigns to help raise much needed awareness of Functional Neurological Disorders (FND), including Non Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD). To learn more about FND visit www.neurosymptoms.org
This year the theme is #WeCare4FND. In addition to raising general awareness, campaigns include highlighting the amazing effort, love and dedication of people, both adults and children, who care for someone who has been diagnosed with FND. This is particularly more difficult than the caring community of more commonly-known conditions given the current lack of awareness.
We want you to join us in getting involved in our campaigns and raising awareness to make a difference to hundreds of adult and children’s lives who are living with FND in the UK. See link below for details on how you can get involved.
