Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    That's just a plain straightforward one.

    Hi Violeta - did you mean to post this on a different thread? This one is about choosing a name for the campaign. :)

    Keep 'em coming...

    Bear in mind there'll be no room for subtitles, though! :)

    Maybe we could help him cut the costs by providing links to all the studies already done in the areas he has mentioned.
    Also, I saw that cfids grants funds for studies for me/cfs

    Oh yes, of course, sorry, I'll put it in the thread on "research".

    What do you think of this one?

    My vote goes for 'The Lipkin microbiome project'.

    Now that I really like. :D

    I think it's a very important point (from a fundraising pov) that this research is likely to benefit other patients, not just us.

    Columbia's Microbiome Initiative?

    Columbia isn't funding it, are they? Columbia University could certainly afford to fund it.

    Universities don't fund research themselves - they attract donors to fund stuff. Their own money goes on infrastructure.

    A slight variation would be: Funding Science, Finding Cures.

    Universities don't fund much research themselves. Researchers have to get funding from outside sources. Grant writing is a major necessary skill for researchers.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, guys - keep 'em coming!

    I'll be closing the garnering of names this afternoon to start the selection process so if you've got any ideas, now's the time!

    Time's up! Entries are closed.

    Thanks very much indeed to everyone who has contributed - you've been a huge help - I see this as a joint creative effort with people's ideas sparking others off.

    Watch this space... back in a couple of days or so...

    Maybe too late to submit yet here is a 'perhaps too silly' suggestion...

    FIND the BUGS in ME
    Find the Bugs in Us

    Take away our spell check and use our particular brand of typos as a diagnostic marker.
