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.

    this was posted by Karen M. Campbell on co-cure today and I thought it was a good idea (I've slightly adapted it for the international market)

    Donations for research

    if 17 million ME/CFS patients each give $1/month, that's

    $17,000,000 a month and $204,000,000/year

    Just the money raised in one month would be over 3X more than the US government funds currently.

    And it'll go where it'll do the most good - to good scientific research on xmrv and on ME/CFS.

    Put that link in with your Christmas cards/e-cards, and ask friends to donate instead of giving you gifts.

    For those older relatives who don't use computers,

    Whittemore Peterson Institute,
    6600 N. Wingfield Parkway,
    Sparks NV 89436

    I would rather have good health than more clutter in my house!

    Great idea. Thanks for posting this.

    I've been using isearchigive and shopping on the igive sites. Even bought a few things, some stocking stuffers. It's fun and it reminds me of WPI every day.
