    This week, the NJCFSA mailed their members the following letter, asking them to send letters of support for the proposed NEI Center in New Jersey. They included two letters addressed to Senators Weinberg and Bateman and even included pre-addressed envelopes to send them in. Their efforts are to be applauded. Thank you NJCFSA for making advocacy an easy task for people with ME/CFS.

    [note] I have been given permission to reprint the following letter and have attached pdf files of the letters to the NJ senators.

    NJ Senate to Vote June 10 on Resolution to Encourage NEI Research Center in State

    NJ Senate to Vote June 10 on Resolution to Encourage NeuroEndocrineImmune Research Center in State

    June 8, 2010

    The New Jersey State Senate will vote on a resolution (Senate Resolution #20) whereby the states Legislature would encourage establishment of a research center in New Jersey dedicated to studying multi-system and complex illnesses such as ME/CFS, FM, MCS, chronic Lyme, and Gulf war illness (collectively termed NeuroEndocrineImmune or NEI diseases).

    If this resolution to encourage establishment of a New-Jersey based NEI Center is passed, the legislature would be agreeing to send copies of the resolution to the Governor of New Jersey and Commissioner of Health & Senior Services, and to key members of the U.S. Congress.

    The NEI Center is a patient-driven community project of P.A.N.D.O.R.A.* Inc. in partnership with The Lanford Foundation-Lifelyme, Inc. To view their website explaining the envisioned NEI Center, go to www.neicenter.com.
