This is Claude. Claude represents anybody living with Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES).
Claude could be a man or woman, young or old, living anywhere in the world.
Because of personal experience, Claude understands the importance of raising awareness of the correct diagnosis and early treatment of CES. Claude has experienced the devastation and isolation and caused by this neurological condition and recognises the importance of being connected and supported by people who’ve been through the same life-changing experience.
Claude’s personal story is a typical one.
Claude tells of delayed diagnosis and treatment, lack of support and of the struggle with acceptance of a life changing condition.
The Cauda Equina Syndrome Association (CESA) is here for people like Claude and their families.
We aim to embrace people living with CES and by using our collective voice, we hope we will bring about change and an end to unnecessary suffering. The UK has the highest incidence of CES. With the help of our members, we hope to change this and empower and support people to continue to live positive, happy lives.
Membership is free to anyone living with Cauda Equina Syndrome.
