Meet the Team – Trustee and Ambassador for Scotland, Elaine McCulloch!

Mar 18, 2021 | Charity, Latest News

We are pleased to announce the next in our ‘Meet the Team’ series and are proud to introduce Elaine McCulloch, Trustee and Ambassador for Scotland!

Elaine tells us her story:

“I became involved in The Lee Spark NF Foundation after contracting Necrotising Fasciitis after a emergency c-section on 14th April 2005.

I spent many months in hospital including ICU, HDU and underwent 6 debridement operations and a long 22 month recovery after being left with a 18 inch hip to hip open wound.

Looking for information, help and support I found this wonderful charity and the assistance of Doreen Cartledge with any question or worry answered with a warm friendly voice.

I found the web page extremely informative and realised the need to raise more awareness, but I wanted to become an Ambassador to spread the word regarding NF and the need for quick diagnosis, effective treatment and rehabilitation from this horrendous disease.

I feel given the opportunity within my living area of Scotland I could make a huge difference by sharing my story and what The Lee Spark NF Foundation stands for, working together in partnership we potentially could save lives.”

We are extremely grateful for all of Elaine’s hard work and campaigning!
