Well our lovely Elaine McCulloch Ambassador for Scotland attended The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh Seminar to give a talk about The Lee Spark NF Foundation and what it means to her.
The following is an account of her day:

1430 – Heading for home
1600 – Home and reflecting on a very successful day.
I gave a lengthy 20 minute talk on the aims, goals of The Lee Spark Foundation and why the charity was started by Doreen Marsden, I also spoke about the costs to the NHS of hospital infections and our survey results from 2011. I then went into extreme detail of my personal story, journey with NF and what it meant not only to the survivor but to the extended friends, family and how I need continuous healthcare and medication to function daily. I shared my graphic photographs and spoke in detail how early diagnoses is the most important factor but would happen if sever symptoms occurred. I shared in depth my personal life and struggles that effected me in the aftermath of NF and how I have changed my life around and how doing what I do for The Lee Spark Foundation means a great deal to me personally, and my goal is to ultimately make people, stop, think and save a life.
