Kansas Author to Speak of Hope
Randolph native, Sue Jones (Rundquist), who wrote the book, "Parting the Fog: The Personal Side of Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome," will be speaking Saturday, April 20th at Clay County Medical Center. The meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. in the education room of the Clay County Medical Center.

Jones was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1997. In her presentation, she uses prose and poetry to get to the heart of the FMS/CFS experience while employing a balanced blend of seriousness and humor. Hope is the prevailing theme of her message. Jones will also perform a song she has written dealing with faith in light of the struggles associated with FMS/CFS or any chronic illness.

The main symptoms of FMS/CFS are widespread pain, stiff and aching muscles, unrelenting fatigue, lack of restorative sleep, and depression. Many other symptoms may be present, as well. If you have been diagnosed with FMS/CFS or suspect you may be suffering from it, plan to attend this uplifting presentation. Feel free to bring a friend or loved one. They are sure to leave with a better understanding of what you are dealing with.
