New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    Light a candle to remember M. E
    I’m organising a fundraising + awareness raising campaign for M. E awareness week called ’Light a candle to remember M . E.

    This will invoke

    • Lighting candles to remember M. E

    • Donating

    • E-mailing photos to me to make a collage of the candles that’ve been lit

      I’d like share their experiences with me though so I have 3 real life examples for people to think of when lighting their candles

      Particularly
      • People who’ve died
      • Been discriminated against
      • Young people preferable under 13
      Peusodns can be used to protect identities

      All proceeds to invest in M. E

    Remember to keep an eye on candles at all times!
    Please, be careful, don't burn your houses down, or injure yourselves.

    I'll try and send a candle lighting photo or more from relatives.
    Perhaps just making a small poster (calendar sized maybe) that says Remember ME to put in the photo as well.

    Also, just to confirm you mean May 12 as the week.

    Oh darn! I was planning to burn my house down or otherwise injure myself, just hadn't decided which yet. You're such a party pooper! ;)

    If someone hasn't already suggested it, it occurred to me that at some future time the blue, spring flowers "forget-me-not" might also work well with ME advocacy themes.

    We don't use candles at all, thanks. :)
    (my OH doesn't like the smell.)
    He won't let me put my lava lamp on. (I find it soothing). He says it's a waste of electricity. He wouldn't let me "waste electricity" on fake candles either.o_O

    One has to compromise in a relationship. :p

    @Rosa Amor Hi Rosa! Great to see you posting on the forums. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you again with this campaign. Excellent idea. Good luck and the Tortoise says 'Take it slow' :thumbsup: xxx

    :pMichael is Irish, Russ. He's a foreigner; an immigrant; he's from Tipperary.

    How will the donations work? I can support this campaign that way.:thumbsup:

    My periwinkles aren't up yet, I'm watching for them.;)
