The Barnes Group is raising money for AMEND UK in 2018 as our chosen “Charity of the Year”.
After a courageous battle and with great dignity, our respected colleague Nick Fayers sadly passed away in December of last year. Nick had a long-standing condition called MEN1, for which the family and The Barnes Group (where Nick worked for the last 34 years), will now aim to raise more funds to support research and provide advice to sufferers.
The Association for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Disorders (AMEND) is a patient group set up in 2002 to support and inform anyone affected by or interested in multiple endocrine neoplasia disorders and their associated endocrine tumours. AMEND is run by patients, for patients, and became a UK registered charity no.1099796 in 2003.
The aim of AMEND is to improve the well-being of all persons affected by MEN and endocrine tumours by providing support to patients and their families and friends, providing information about MEN and other relevant issues relating to genetic disorders, promoting a wider knowledge of MEN among the medical profession to assist in early and accurate diagnosis and assisting in future MEN research.
