Before we get into the main body, here, I just want to say how incredibly amazing it has been to work on this campaign so far. I never imagined it would get this big! But to keep that ball rolling, we do need funding. Even $5 would be amazing. Please consider this, and please re-post, mention on Facebook and Twitter, and talk to friends and relatives if the #MillionsMissing protest means something to you. On May 25, 2016, #MEAction is sponsoring a community-organized protest at Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) across the country, and in cities all over the world. As a community, we are bowled over by the response. The protest started as a single effort in Washington, D.C., but as of today there will be organized protests in: Washington, D.C. San Francisco Boston Seattle Atlanta Dallas London Canada (virtual) Australia We are still looking for people to organize in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Kansas City, and Denver — imagine the power in saying that every regional HHS office in the United States was included in the protest! We released the #MillionsMissing Protest Demands, with four main goals for the future of ME/CFS in the U.S.: Increase research funding and program investments for ME/CFS commensurate with the severity of the disease: $250 million per year. Accelerate clinical trials for ME/CFS (there are no current FDA-approved medications for the disease). Disseminate accurate medical education and clinical guidelines to end the spread of harmful, erroneous information about ME/CFS. Provide HHS leadership, oversight and a serious commitment to urgently address ME/CFS. We have finished our press release to help educate the press about ME/CFS and the issues we face as a community. This is our fight for change. Can you help? If the goals of the #MillionsMissing protest are important to you, we hope you will be able to donate to the cause. Every little bit helps! Despite our physical debility, we are a vibrant, strong community with a lot of fight in us! Thank you for sharing your passion and commitment to ME/CFS.
