“While James was lucky to survive the disease, it did have an impact on him as he grew up but he worked hard to overcome these challenges and he’s now 22 and has just been awarded a 2:1 BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Lincoln. He has now applied to do a Masters there in Psychology Research. He is fascinated by the workings of the brain after he himself had a brain trauma.
“I’ve now been trained as an Ambassador and I can’t wait to get stuck into the role so that hopefully I play my part in defeating this disease by raising awareness in my area.”
Sue will be joining a group of over 100 MRF Ambassadors in the UK whose role it is to raise funds and awareness in their community and work towards the charity’s goal of a world free from meningitis.
Rob Dawson, Director of Support at MRF said, “Sue has already helped us so much over the years to raise awareness of meningitis, even attending the Houses of Parliament to help us campaign for the MenB vaccine to be introduced and taking part in fundraising events. We are delighted to make that role official and we look forward to working together more.”
