About this cause

About our cause

This Charity supports people in the North East of England who suffer from Polymialgia Rhumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA). PMR is a painful and debilitating inflammation of the muscles, GCA is inflammation of the Temporal Arteries which can result in blindness if it it not diagnosed quickly. The only treatment is Steriods which in turn have drastic side effects. The funding enables the to hold group meetings, support carers, offer support to others via e.mail from around the world and maintain our web site. We also raise funds for research in the hopes of finding better treatment and a cure.
