TENTH ANNIVERSARY APPEAL

Over the past ten years, with your support, we have done so much. But now, as more and more people find out about us, we need to raise more money to help them.

 

Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) and Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) are linked rheumatic conditions, little known by the public and  poorly understood in medicine. They can strike separately, but often together, usually affecting older people. Causing severe pain and discomfort, the standard treatment is long-term use of corticosteroids. Undiagnosed and untreated GCA can lead to catastrophic sight loss, although this is easily prevented if caught in time.

PMRGCAuk is a registered charity established to meet the needs of people with these debilitating conditions, their friends, families and helping professionals.

We offer information and support at all stages – from diagnosis through to recovery. We provide information packs, a helpline, newsletters, support groups around the country, and a web forum where you can share your experiences and learn from other people with PMR and GCA.

Above all, we offer hope!

FREE HELPLINE: 0300 111 5090 or helpline@pmrgca.org.uk 
GENERAL ENQUIRIES: 0300 999 5090 or info@pmrgca.org.uk
