It's May12th Awareness Day!

It is the dream of our patient community to erase the stigma and finally be taken seriously by friends, family, researchers, government and people in our local communities. May 12th Awareness Day is a chance for the millions of patients worldwide suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis(ME), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity/Environmental Sensitivities (MCS/ES) and Fibromyalgia (FM) to be seen and heard! These illnesses are real; the people are real; and they need help NOW!

These are chronic and severely disabling illnesses. They are as disabling as MS. People are frequently bedridden and become isolated from friends and family – invisible in their own communities.

Dr Nancy Klimas, an expert in ME, CFS and AIDS, was quoted as saying "A CFS patient feels the same or worse than congestive heart failure. The same or worse than late stage AIDS. If I had to choose between the two illnesses I would rather have H.I.V. "

These illnesses do not discriminate. All races, men and women, adults and children can be afflicted. It is particularly devastating when a child is forced to cope with such a disabling illness.

We are on a mission to bring awareness around the world for this patient community and to set the stage for fundraising for research and more physician education and ultimately a cure.

With education, will come action! Our community is desperately in need of treatment facilities and funding is required to support research and our scientists. A successful May 12th will bring many rewards for years to come. These activities will not only benefit us today, but they will be an investment in our future.

For more information, please contact us at Action CIND (info@actioncind.org or info@may12th.org)

To quote Helen Keller – “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
