    Hi guys,

    GIve Dr. Ron Davis The Greatest Birthday Present

    On July 17th, Dr. Ron Davis will be celebrating his birthday. OMF is inviting you to join us in being part of a special birthday surprise for him.

    On August 10th and 11th, OMF and Dr. Davis are organizing a ME/CFS Collaborative Team Meeting at Stanford University with world-renowned scientists and experts. OMF is underwriting the 2-day scientific meeting and is providing support for the Community Symposium on August 12th. Join us and meet our scientists in person and be updated first-hand on progress made and future plans! (Registration is still open. If you are able to join us, make your reservation today.)

    Please contribute in honor of Dr. Davis and show him how much our community appreciates his work. Last year, Dr Davis was sincerely moved by the outpouring of support for his birthday and he truly cherishes the personal messages he received. This year, all donors will be invited to sign an online worldwide card created just for Dr. Davis.

    Dr. Davis and Linda Tannenbaum, CEO/President, both parents of sick children, are on a path for a cure and for answers. We can solve this complex and debilitating disease by working together.

    Please donate generously to honor Dr. Davis and support OMF's research.


    Thanks guys,


    B

    Hope you can make it a good one! I've a feeling that thanks to the fantastic work of you and others, it may in the not too distant future feel like everyone's birthday. Happy Birthday.

    @Janet Dafoe (Rose49) The opportunity to say Happy Birthday to Ron, with thanks, didn't appear as expected after making an online donation today in his honour. Will you please pass on my very warmest wishes -- and save some for yourself, of course.

    Correction: A link to send a personal message to Ron was included in a confirmation email just received from Linda Tannenbaum of the Open Medicine Foundation.

    @Ben Howell Thanks for keeping this thread lively! I'd love to know how much came in during this "Birthday Celebration" funding event--that is if they have counted our pennies yet!

    Hi @Jill

    No worries-thank you, that is so kind!

    Yes you should be able to donate via the 'donate' link at the top (just checked, still works).
