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.

    Interesting decision (and look at their survey poll results!). The tricky thing is going to be to judge when you need to include the CFS bit to reach patients who are not yet aware that the CFS they've been diagnosed with is also called ME, or the wider public who aren't aware of the same thing (probably all of them).
