ME as cause of death

Last Friday (18th May) it was confirmed by a coroner that ME had contributed to the cause of young Merryn Crofts death. Merryn developed symptoms of ME at age 15 and after battling the illness for several years she died on 23rd May 2017, days after her 21st birthday.

Merryn’s family hope the results of the inquest will change attitudes to ME. It is only the second time such a conclusion has been made in the UK, according to the ME Association.
