The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Give me something in "your" English, and I can "make it nice, ;) pero no hay tiempo para escribir algo a mí mismo, mi querido amigo. :p (I hope I didn't just say something horrid and inappropriate in my miserable Spanish!

    Co-cure would be a good one but you need someone with direct posting privileges (long story). I'll PM someone I know.

    Hi @Sushi, I need your help again as I cannot edit my first message! The following link is the English version of the project "Characterization of immunological biomarkers in ME/CFS", in good English, this time translated by a native. So I would very much appreciate if you could change the URL linked to the phrase "read the entire project", in the forth line of the message, for the following one:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3CcKvRcY8pZNW9NQ054OXNpSXc/view

    Or for this other one, in case you see it doesn't work well from the USA:

    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3CcKvRcY8pZNW9NQ054OXNpSXc/edit

    Muchas gracias!

    Invest in ME and Tom Kindlon have retweeted my Tweets linking to the English translation and the ASSEM website.

    I don't know if it's up-to-date, but the ASSEM website says €6,655 raised and €5,344 to raise.

    Hi @acer2000, they are updating the "meter?" every other day or so, becase they are inundated at the moment... I think they did so yesterday or the day before, so what @Bob says must be accurate, pobabbly a little more (€5,344 to raise).

    Thank you very much @Tuha! with all this help should be enough I hope... They are already seeing patients, so the project is underway!

    Yes @Sushi, that's what I wanted, the official entire project, translated into proper English finally! Gracias!

    Thank you @Bob, sounds really good! I don't have a tweeter account, so that's very helpful too!

    Ok, so let's see if this last "push" is enough to reach the target! I will let you all know how it goes!

    Best!
    Sergio

    I've just discovered that IrsiCaixa have an English language website: http://www.irsicaixa.es/en
    I can't see any info re ME/CFS, but it's interesting to have a quick look at their regular research activities.

    Does anyone know how we are doing for donations? The website doesn't seem to have been updated since 19 March!

    I've just seen this and I do want to donate but first I want to know what happens if the full amount isn't reached by this deadline?

    You could see if Cort will put something on his site about this to help with donations if it hasn't already been mentioned there http://www.cortjohnson.org/
