International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Dr. Davis' new test for CFS biomarkers should help (once independently verified), but there will probably still be people denying that CFS is a valid physical condition. Dr. Davis' finding that it's caused by something carried in plasma makes the solution quite simple: offer to do a serum swap with a CFS patient. Then the deniers can feel the symptoms themselves. ;)

    I don't think Dr Davis and colleaggues are quite there with a biomarker but they are doing fantastic work.

    The latest OMF new letetr said they had raised $1 million in April.

    Look out for a paper from Robert Naviaux, the metabolomics/mitochondria expert at UCSD, later this week plus his CDC talk on Thursday.

    Much to look forward to :)
