FND in the News – Invictus Games
This morning, Team UK also unveiled its first female captain, RAF veteran Rachel Williamson.
Ms Williamson previously received a rugby injury, which developed into a functional neurological disorder, leaving her unable to use her arm completely.
FND Hope UK is part of the first and only global patient-led charity for people with Functional Neurological Disorder. Originating as a grassroots campaign, it uncovers the hidden world of FND and empowers those affected to live their best possible life.
We wish her and her team every success in the Invictus Games

It is the second most frequent reason for a neurology outpatient appointment and more prevalent than Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. But stigma means people wait years for diagnosis, leading to wasted, expensive medical visits, worsening symptoms and distress.
