Inkersall Sisters Speak Out On Living With Fibromyalgia
Monday 11 December 2017
From UK radio station Peak FM:
Chesterfield women fight to get 'debilitating illness' officially recognised as a disability
Three sisters from Inkersall have told Peak FM of their struggle in coping with a genetic condition known as fibromyalgia.
Adrienne Lakin, Sarah Lakin and Leanne Marie Lakin all suffer from the condition, and they sat down and told Peak FM the harrowing details of their struggle to cope with it, and their fight to get the issue discussed in parliament.
So far they have received more than 10,000 signatures but require around 100,000 to get MP's to discuss it.
LISTEN: Three Chesterfield sisters discuss the difficulty of living with Fibromyalgia.
They have also set up a website and Facebook page to raise extra awareness of the condition, both of which are filled with information on the girls' campaign.
The petition to get Fibromyalgia discussed in parliament can be found here.
