    Just received this email from the Open Medicine Foundation

    ANNOUNCMENT: We are pleased to announce that we have just received $142,000 for our continuing OMF End ME/CFS Project; the second generous donation from an anonymous donor.

    As Phase 1 begins (Severely ill Big Data study) and we are preparing for Phase 2, we are tremendously grateful of our continuing supporters that keep this research going.

    The plan for Phase 2 involves taking what we learn from Phase 1 and testing a smaller, focused list of tests, on moderately ill ME/CFS patients. As we raise funds for Phase 2, the scientific advisory board will determine which hypotheses to test immediately and which to wait until Phase 1 is completed (9-12 months).

    Stay tuned.
    With sincere gratitude and hope,
    Linda
