Petition For Illness To Be Recognised As Disability In UK
Tuesday 2 May 2017
From UK newspaper the Derbyshire Times:
Petition for illness to be recognised as disability
A Chesterfield woman who suffers from a crippling illness is campaigning to see it recognised as a disability in UK law.
Twenty-four year-old Adrienne Lakin, her three sisters and her mother all suffer from fibromyalgia - a condition which causes chronic pain, fatigue and memory loss.
But, under the Equality Act, the illness is deemed as an impairment rather than a disability.
In an attempt to secure more support and better funding for herself and fellow sufferers Adrienne has started a petition to Parliament which has attracted 18,829 in just over a month.
