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.

    Doctor Eleanor Stein has organized an educational event on disability supports in Canada. Speakers will include officials from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Alberta disability programs, plus two disability lawyers and a patient advocate.

    The event is being sponsored by the National ME/FM Action Network. Participants must register in advance -- whether attending in person in Calgary, or on-line.

    Here's a link for additional information:

    The information presented will be of particular interest to those Canadians new to ME/CFS who are working through their disability support issues.
