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.

    I just read on this Dutch website that Norway has now also banned ME/CFS patients from donating blood:
    http://www.hetalternatief.org/XMRV Noorwegen Bloedbanken 2010 785.htm

    A letter was sent by the government to bloodbanks that states that the relationship between XMRV and ME/CFS is not clear at the moment. It's also stating though that sick people should not donate blood and that therefore ME/CFS patients should not donate blood.

    So officially this ban is not about XMRV... :angel:
