Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a complicated name for an even more complicated disease. Some people call it Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), but it's so much more than that. This is a disease that robs people of their lives and livelihoods. Up to 2.5 million Americans and 20 million people worldwide are affected by ME/CFS. There are no FDA-approved treatments and there is no cure.
Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) is the only disease organization solely dedicated to making ME/CFS understood, diagnosable and treatable. They have a diverse research portfolio, so they can look at the disease from different angles. And they lead the advocacy effort for increased federal funding of research.
I support SMCI because I believe that they will bring us closer to treatments and a cure. Please join me with a donation. Every gift - large and small - moves the needle forward.
