The total cost of the National Institute of Health ME/CFS projects for fiscal year 2017 was a paltry $7 million. This, in spite of the fact that ME/CFS afflicts almost as many people in the U.S. as prostate cancer, multiple sclerosis, breast cancer and muscular dystrophy which collectively receive $1,168,000,000 in N.I.H. funding. Clearly, we need to demand more of our government.
Among the steps you can take to support your own well-being from the ravages of ME/CFS:
1. Send email and letters to your representatives in congress (find their contact info at https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials/) and demand that they take steps to increase funding for ME/CFS by National Institute of Health
2. Take personal responsibility for our own health and do whatever you can to support ME/CFS medical research. Consider making a donation in any amount you can afford for ME/CFS medical research.
We have a long history with Dr. Nancy Klimas who is one of the leading scientists in the world for medical research into ME/CFS. You might consider making a donation to her work by clicking on the following PayPal button or the link below it.

I have had ME/CFS since May, 2006 when I had a sudden onset of the disease following a bout of stomach flu. For the first few years I was virtually a prisoner in my home. The overwhelming crashes I suffered often lasted for weeks and sometimes were so bad that I was nearly comatose as you might note in the video below from that period.
In my lucid moments I searched the Internet for help since my doctors were of no assistance in even understanding what was going on in my body. My failure to find anything of value on the Internet led me in 2008 to form the nonprofit organization cfsKnowledgeCenter and begin to build websites devoted to helping others around the world learn about the disease and what they can do with the challenges they face.
Today, thanks largely to Dr. Nancy Klimas, I am virtually recovered and lead a very normal life although at age 75 I don’t run very far or very fast.
As my age creeps up on me I have joined with my long term friend, Cort Johnson, to coordinate our efforts to serve those of us around the world who are affected by ME/CFS.
If you care to help us a little along the way, please consider adding whatever you can afford in financial support to Help Us Help You.
