    I'm really excited about this, especially because he is my doctor and I think very highly of him.
    I hope it will be successful. The more people doing studies from different angles, the better chance we have on finding something that will make sense.

    Hmmm. They really need a dedicated website to raise money. If this is a matching fund, that means the money is only released as donations come in.

    Thanks for sharing. A million dollars goes a long way! How can we donate? I don't see the fund form or any place to contribute.

    A big thanks to the patient of Dr. Enlander's for making such a bold matching fund donation. Matching donations of this magnitude help tremendously with much needed funding and the $1,000,000 figure is one the gets attention. Especially coming from a patient, it conveys a commitment to the research community that patients affected by this dreaeded disease the we are ready to fight the fight.

    A great big thanks to this patient of Dr. Enlander!!!!!

    It is my understanding that a patient donated the money for Dr. E to collaborate with Mt. Sinai to create the ME/CFS Center. I think it is made payable to Mt. Sinai, earmarked for Dr. E and the ME/CFS Center. I'll keep my eyes open for donation specifics.
