BASSETT (Jodi Lyn):
Our darling, beautiful Jodi, left us on June 11, at home, with her family beside her.
She was a talented artist, author and HFME activist. She was the most amazing, caring, intelligent, and funny person and we will miss her always.
Her beautiful spirit is now flying free.
May the winds of love blow softly And whisper for you to hear That we will always love you And forever keep you near.
All our love Mum, Dad, Claire Dan and Leila, Mark Betty and Reece.

Jodi Bassett : Creator of Hummingbirds Foundation For M.E. Is Dead at the Age of 39*
Jodi Basset, longtime Australian M.E. patient, author and advocate has died. She was either 39/40 years old*. She had been illl with a severe case of M.E. for over 20 years. Her cause of death was not stated.
I went from feeling normal one day to having horrific cognitive and physical problems to deal with the next. It just came out of nowhere. My brain, my body and my whole life changed in an instant.
After being prescribed exercise therapy her disease rapidly progressed until she was severely ill. For the past 15 years or so she had to spend most of her time in bed.
"What was initially a mild/moderate case of M.E. ended up as a severe one around 4 years later (and remains so today). I am still paying the price for that terrible advice more than 10 years later and probably will for the rest of my life unfortunately."
