Equality News Update: Social event in Fife to provide support for FND sufferers

A Kirkcaldy woman who suffers from a disabling neurological disorder is organising an event in Dysart to provide support and reduce isolation for people with similar conditions.

Kez Malloch has Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) and runs a worldwide support group on Facebook for people who are diagnosed with the condition and their families.

The 33-year-old mum of two has arranged a ‘meet and greet’ on Saturday, March 10 at the Royal Hotel from 5pm so people can have a chance to meet others with neurological conditions and ask any questions.
Kez has also teamed up with Purple Caffe, which offers help to Fife families affected by epilepsy, for the event – which is free to attend – as it supports locals who have similar symptoms to those with FND.

Following an informal chat session, there will be a disco from 7pm and a buffet, tombola and raffle as well as activities for children.
Kez revealed that she was first diagnosed with FND seven years ago at the age of 26.
