ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a disease I’m learning too much about from my daughter-in-law and other dear friends stricken in their primes with this often-lifelong illness. This is a health care cause that needs all the help we can find, and your non-financial support is as important as the funding.
Please consider doing a few things to help the 1M+ Americans (2M+ worldwide), mostly women, who suffer with ME/CFS:
1. Learn about ME/CFS: watch the critically-acclaimed feature film Unrest on Netflix or Amazon Prime. Check out more info at solveCFS.org
2. Chip in to my year-end campaign to raise $5000 for SolveME/CFS (SMCI). I've joined the board of this terrific organization which is leading the charge to attract and fund talented ME/CFS researchers, and advocate for reasonable levels of private and federal funds to grow the research effort.
3. Help me find and reach out to others who have ME/CFS and wish to know more about SMCI. Ironically, many patients appear healthy to outsiders on days they are well enough to engage with the world, while on most days their capacity to work, move, and sleep may be severely limited.
Thanks so much,
P.S. No gift is too small or too large!
