How we can hijack the media, in four easy lessons
Love it, hate it, good story, bad story... the media are going to keep reporting on ME/CFS no matter what. But isn’t it time that we saw that coverage as an opportunity?

    The four ME/CFS charities involved this year - Action for ME, Invest in ME, MERUK and MEA - all agreed that we would not compete with each other in any particular month - so we each have a good chance of winning some cash each month.

    The MEA has supported and publicised voting for the other charities so far and I hope their members will do the same for the MEA vote this month.

    Please note that ALL money raised will be going to biomedical research - nothing on salaries or admin as the Ramsay Research Fund does not employ staff and all the admin costs are covered by MEA general funds

    You can vote for where you would like to see the money to go from our list of top research priorities- Rituximab trial, neuroinflammation and post-mortem research or immune dysfunction research - in our May website poll on the home page of the MEA website: www.meassociation.org.uk

    Many thanks to everyone who has voted today
    We've got off to a cracking start with just over 350 votes in the first 24 hours
    The MEA is still in first place but those in second and third are catching up fast

    So please vote if you haven't already done so and share the Facebook link with friends, colleagues and relatives
    You can also vote by texting if you prefer: BIG BREAK 0381 to 78866
