Sorry if this has already been asked, but has Oprah ever done a show or magazine article about CFS?

She's been approached multiple times over many years but I'm not aware of Oprah ever doing a complete show.

CFS and FM have been mentioned though

@ukxmrv Thanks and I wonder why Oprah has never done a complete show on ME/CFS? She reaches such a big audience, it is a shame! I wish a major celebriety/donor would take interest in this cause to further the research. It seems like such a no-brainer, yet so difficult to attain.
