It is our mission to raise the profile of cauda equina syndrome everywhere. It is vital that everyone knows the red flags, especially people suffering with low back pain and that we continue deliver our message to more people. We quickly realised there had never been a National Awareness Day dedicated day to Cauda Equina Syndrome so on October 1st 2020, we announced the first ever Awareness Day for CES. Since then, we have enjoyed lots of support from patients, their partners, families and friends, that has helped make CES Awareness Day a successful annual event.
We have hosted online Festivals with contributions from patients and leading medical experts engaging with over 450 attendees to raise awareness. We have organised epic fundraising events such as “Walking for CES” where we raised over £5000 and huge virtual patient meetings to celebrate the day.
We have lots of exciting things in the pipeline for CES Awareness Day 2023 and if you would like to be involved or have an idea you would like to share with us to promote CES Awareness Day please get in touch let us know. We need your support and help to reach everybody in the community and Awareness Day the most important day of the year for us to do this.
