Chance to sign up for conference

RESIDENTS in Scarborough suffering from a life-threatening disease are being offered the chance to gain expert advice and have their questions answered from one of the UK’s top GPs, Dr Hilary Jones.

Dr Hilary, who regularly appears on ITV’s Daybreak and This Morning programmes, will host an online consultation for sufferers of vasculitis, an incurable disease which inflames and destroys blood vessels. It affects one in 30,000 people in the UK.

Organised by the Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation, the online conference will be held on Wednesday at 5pm.

The conference is free to take part in and family and friends of those affected by the disease are also welcome.

The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation was set up in memory of Lauren Currie by her parents Grant and Adrienne whose aim is to raise awareness and funds for medical research into this incurable disease as well as providing support for those living with the condition.

Lauren died from vasculitis when she was 15, tragically just 48 hours after she was diagnosed.
