As a legacy to the memory of my amazing mum, Marg Evans, I'm raising awareness and money for the Addison's Disease Self Help Group so that they can continue to support people with Addison's and adrenal insufficiency.
Mum suffered with Addison's Disease for almost 30 years and was hospitalised a number of times when in life threatening crisis, it also made it harder to recover from any illness including simple coughs and colds.

Addison’s is a rare endocrine condition where the adrenal glands do not produce enough steroid hormones and can be life threatening. It affects approximately 1 in 10,000 people, meaning an estimated 300 - 350 new cases are diagnosed each year across the UK, this makes it roughly 300 times rarer than diabetes.

Life-long treatment with replacement steroid hormones is required. Medication is usually taken several times daily at carefully timed intervals and individuals must also know how to administer an emergency hydrocortisone injection to prevent a potentially fatal adrenal crisis.

The ADSHG, are there to support those in the Addison’s and adrenal insufficiency community and their healthcare providers to promote better medical understanding of this rare condition, campaign for and support everyone affected by adrenal failure, and fund vital research.

If you have a few minutes spare please do grab a cuppa and have a read about what the condition is, what they do, and how you can support people who have the condition if they become unwell.
