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.

    Amazing initiative.

    It´s possible to sign a petition although you aren´t Dutch aside the awareness action May, 1st, but it was hard to fill in the boxes as the text with instructions is in Dutch. Maybe someone could ask for an English version too?

    Anil van der Zee, a Dutch ME patient with Severe ME, and a former prof dancer, has created a beautiful ME Awareness project. You can watch him dance here before he got sick:

    Anil has asked friends, former colleagues and fellow artists to help raise awareness! And they are !! See for example this moving video from a former dancer and friend of Anil

    She says: Inspiration for this video was the thought: What would I miss about my live if I was very sick, isolated and alone.The people I love, places I go to, music and dance.Some parts I dance without music to emphasise the loneliness in silence.

    Anil asks people to join his ME Awareness movement. What can you do?

    1. He asks everyone to sign the Dutch petition and share it so that we can be heard https://meisgeensolk.petities.nl/?locale=en
    Guys we need 2700 more signatures to reach 10,000, please sign and share !!

    2. Watch all the moving video's and creative projects from Anil's friends that are raising awareness for ME on the special FB page: https://www.facebook.com/undauerMEArt2cureME/?fref=ts

    3. Join !! read here how: http://anilvanderzee.com/undauer-eng/
