In memory of…
Donations or tribute funds in memory of a loved one are a special way to help support the EMF.
A donation of £4485 was made in memory of Kevin Stewart The money was raised by: Julie Stewart, Alistair Stewart, Margaret Stewart, Yvonne Stewart, Karen Gibson, Gillian Moir, Dave Leighton and Alison Clark,, who all took part in the Baxters River Ness 10k Run, in Scotland, in memory of Julie’s late husband.
“Kevin once told me that when he recovered he wanted to do some fundraising and give someone else the opportunity to receive treatment at Breakspear Medical. After he passed away, we knew we would do something to honour his memory and we wanted to carry out Kevin’s wishes. Deciding to do the 10K was easy; it was the taking part that was difficult. We had a great day, it was very emotional crossing the finish line for all those who had taken part but we knew Kevin would have been proud of us.” – Julia Stewart
We are very privileged to be able to contribute to environmental medicine, particularly raising awareness and helping individual sufferers obtain treatment they could not otherwise afford. We are of course extremely grateful to all those whose financial support of our charity enables us to carry out that work.
I am pleased to say that through the EMF giving me the opportunity to start treatment [at Breakspear Medical], and my improvement over the first year, I was awarded NHS funding from the PCT. I am pleased to say that at the time of writing this letter I still have NHS funding for treatment.
The reason I support the Environmental Medicine Foundation is because they help people with chronic environmental health issues recover and start to led a normal life again.
Until I was 3 years old I was always sick. It’s not a good feeling being sick. One Christmas I could not laugh or play or even open my presents! I just sat there ill. After that Mum took me to hospital to get some help [and] now that I don’t have allergic reactions, I can eat all kinds of foods… Now I can learn karate, go swimming, go to Beavers and even have fun!
