International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Please remember this film is not suitable for children and young people with ME who may be distressed by viewing it. It is intended to educate those who are not familiar with the illness and issues surrounding it.

    The film is in English with subtitles in Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, French, Italian, Czech, German, Japanese and English.


    “The reach of this riveting film has been extraordinary, and it has significantly influenced the debate on seriously ill youth with ME. This moving documentary has been like a shot heard around the world as it has precipitated an increasing awareness of the severely ill and highlighted the prejudice against patients and the unwitting but pernicious harm done by too many health care professionals.”
    Professor Leonard Jason, Director of the Center for Community Research
