    Thank you to everyone who remembers ME/CFS causes in their will. I just read that the (UK) ME Association got £355,690 from legacies in 2015.

    That is a lot more than they got in donations (£207,306).

    Money can be tight for most people with ME/CFS when they are alive. This is another way people can make a difference.

    I have made ME research and ME charities the major beneficiaries of my will now my family and friends have died. I hope many others will do the same.

    I already have two clauses in my will relating to ME though they are not my primary beneficiary at this time.

    thanks for this reminder. I think I'll leave something to my local ME/CFS society in my will.

    Great timing as I am due to make a will. Even if I fall off my perch before the Invisible Man does, I still want something to go to ME causes. It's a good reminder to discuss it with him too. Although I am the one who is ill, ME has had a profound effect on his life too so I am sure he will want to do the same.

    ETA: If you want to this might also be the time to donate your body, or parts thereof, for research into ME (as opposed to general research). The ME Assoc. used to have a form for this.
