The Cauda Equina Syndrome Association was started almost ten years ago by Claire Thornber who had suffered with Cauda Equina Syndrome and wanted to support other sufferers and raise awareness of this appalling condition.

This dynamic organisation now has over 2,000 members across the world and earlier this year was awarded charitable status as ‘Cauda Equina Champions Charity’. ‘Champions’ across the UK, and even in Australia and the United States, offer peer support to those who are struggling to come to terms with their diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome.

Led by people who have experienced this debilitating condition, CECC is launching its first National Awareness Day this autumn to try to increase understanding of Cauda Equina Syndrome which can be a medical emergency. If untreated, the patient may suffer double incontinence and paralysis of the lower body.

Now CECC has achieved yet another coup in gaining the support of Duncan James, member of boyband ‘Blue’ who has also experienced this shocking illness. He has been appointed as CECC’s first charity ambassador and has commented on his determination to raise awareness of the impact of cauda equina syndrome.
