Someone posted a thread the other day asking how many people world wide have "cfs"? and someone said there is an estimated 250 000 in the U.K alone. and it got me thinking that if our biggest hurdle to finding a cure is lack of funds then we may have to take this challenge on ourselves. Just think if we could get everyone world wide to donate say 10 dollars and if they could then get one family member, friend or someone else who has been affected by this illness or witnessed its effects then the money would add up pretty quick. So I was thinking, has anything like this been attempted?
