article states she contracted EBV and then developed chronic fatigue syndrome.
good on you Cher!
article wasn't huge about that but still good on her! she said something about her career going down the toilet and doing lots of commercials.

Cher is probably the most famous person who has CFS. She's talked about it at times in the past too so its not something she hides. Good to know she's still talking about it at times.

Cher is raising money for autism research and advocacy, not CFS. Kind of odd don't you think?

Not when you consider there is no real respected National group that one can raise money for.
Yes there are several good smaller regional groups. But we are sadly a fragmented bunch.

The Lipkin study and Enlander's Mt. Sinai studies are worthwhile places to raise funds for.
I agree completely that they are. But they are not well known except to our community. And I mean the internet ME communities. Even then, it took me quite the effort to get the info on how to first donate to Enlander a couple years ago and post the info on here. As did someone else do so w/ Lipkin.
The point is there is no central easy or obvious connect.

Enlander and Lipkin are hardly self promoters. They need some reps to do some marketing for their research imo.
