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.

    I'm not sure where to post this, and I don't know this person, but someone posted it on Facebook, and their situation looks so dire. I hope you'll check out the short video, and make a donation if you can...

    Thanks Dannybex for alerting us to Dierdre's plight. It reminds me of a lady in the UK - Gillian Macarthy who we tried, but failed to get help for through htis site and other means.

    I have donated a small amount to help them build the shelter for Dierdre - even though i am on benefits.
    I am lucky that i have a safe home to live in and my health is not compromised in such an etreme way. I do hope that others here offer their support too.
    Perhaps members of other forums could repost the link there?

    Thanks Justy and CJB -- I'm on SSI benefits too, so couldn't donate much at all, but any amount will help. Also, perhaps someone might know someone else who may have the means to help in a more substantial way. Seems like they're about a month away from just giving up completely...which of course would be tragic.

    Here's a direct link to their fundraising page with a summary of her story:

    Thanks CJB for bumping this thread - i do hope that someone may know of people who could really help. I wonder what they will do if they dont meet their target? Such a tragic situation.

    I'm encouraged. Their total is growing. I hope everyone will at least send them a note of encouragement.
