    Why: Get December's unfavorable news articles further down on Google searches

    How: See this-!/event.php?eid=163069410406270

    It cost you nothing.
    You will find a template for a blog post to make it simple. And you will find some suggested links to include in your blog. Read the instructions carefully.

    MCWPA is about changing the public perception of our illness. Whereas we do not know yet if XMRV is the cause, what we do know is that some news reports included quotes that misrepresented the state of the science at this time. We hope you will do what you can to help make sure the truth is prominent for the public and news media.

    Also, please take this survey for what actions you want us to take in the next six months: --- Last day for giving comments and voting is this Sunday, 23 January 2011.
