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.

    Laurel,

    Such a great job on the video - so eloquent, and moving in its simplicity and straightforward truth and grace - and congratulations that it will be viewed at the October meeting!

    Just creating it must have been a lot of work and it must have been great to get the feedback from fellow patients, but it must also be satisfying at another level that your voice will now reach a government advisory committee and researchers. You've done great for so many of us who can't be at the meeting and who haven't been able to express ourselves as effectively.

    I echo everyone else's comments and thank you!
