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.

    Together Our Community Soared in 2018


    Dear Friends,

    On behalf of our OMF Team, including our Board of Directors, Scientific Advisory Board, and patients around the world, thank you for your impactful support helping to make 2018 a banner year in ME/CFS research.

    With more than $9 million raised in 2018, we are able to accelerate our efforts to engage more researchers and clinicians towards understanding the molecular basis of ME/CFS, finding effective treatments and creating innovative diagnostic technologies. As we begin the new year, please accept our sincerest gratitude.

    This past year, most notably, we expanded the OMF-funded ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University and launched the OMF-funded ME/CFS Collaborative Research Activities at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Harvard Affiliated Hospitals. We also funded several other critical research projects.

    Below are highlights of the past year’s achievements:
