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.

    Sounds like another movie in the making.

    Absolutely - how could this not be a movie?....I imagine some actors are licking their chops....

    That also demonstrates how intransigent this disorder; after Seabiscuit Lauren obviously has the capability of getting the best medical care possible (if she can get to it!)...yet here she remains with that terrible vertigo and housebound.

    I was at the CAA's Congressional briefing that featured her a couple of years ago and that guy from NPR got up -Scott Simon (in tears) and said - she just lives down the street! - but she couldn't make it. Rough, rough stuff - we need more research!

    This is great news! I'm so happy for her.
    If I were Laura Hillenbrand, I would give a million dollars to the WPI.

    "Unbroken" is now at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list (hardcover non-fiction.) Go Laura.
