Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a big name for a horrible disease that affects up to 2.5 million people in the United States and as many as 20 million people worldwide. Some people call this disease Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), but it's so much more than feeling tired. ME/CFS robs people of their lives and their livelihoods.
I came to work at Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) because I wanted to help end the suffering of people who have this disease. Everyday, I have the privilege of raising funds to help SMCI make ME/CFS understood, diagnosable and treatable. We're working hard to find treatments and a cure through scientific research and advocacy.
Every gift made to SMCI goes toward moving the needle forward against this awful disease. Every gift, large and small, makes a difference.
Thank you for considering a gift to SMCI.
