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.

    If I remember, maybe I'll send them an email enquiring about the timeline on Monday.
    Perhaps an invitation to send what they've got so far would prove fruitful.

    I can only hope they will have got our bloods straight, DB :eek:

    Well, I did remember to email Jane yesterday.
    Fingers crossed for a positive reply!

    Here is the response I received today from Jane at Stanford, with her permission to repost:

    The testing for the study is ongoing. We are doing 3 types of pathogen tests
    as well as multiple immunology tests and gene expression tests. We don't
    have results as yet. When we do we will contact you. I know it's been a long
    time, but I think we are finding out some things about the disease that will
    help in the long run. Thank you for your participation.

    Someone said they sent the samples to Columbia University to be sampled. I think I would have some reservations about the validity of a sample the is over 3 years old. Hopefully soon!
