Two nights ago local news had coverage of a fundraising event in our city. It was for Lupus and there were hundreds of people walking. At the end of the piece they announced they had raised $20,000.00! I thought would'nt that be nice if I could do that for me/cfs, but then reality set in when I realized that 99% of the population doesn't have a clue what cfs/me is! It's a crying shame, that after all these years, we are still hidden in the shadows!
