Dear fellow Brunonians,
Due to my illness with M.E. (myalgic encephalomyelitis), I cannot attend our 5th reunion this year. ME/CFS is a neuroimmune disease with a wide range of symptoms, not just fatigue. I am now housebound and unable to travel anymore.
For more information on ME/CFS please visit:
M.E. affects the lives of millions of Americans, but it is severely underfunded by NIH, with annual funding of $5 million, compared to other diseases like SLE (lupus) or MS (multiple sclerosis), both of which receive about $100 million annually (source).
We, patients with ME, need your help. Please participate in #chilliMEchallenge so that one day, I can join you at our reunion on College Hill.
For more info on the campaign, please visit the official website:
You can watch collection of some other participants from the official Chilli M.E. Challenge page on Facebook.
Please watch my video message to you:
