M.E. stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a serious, disabling and chronic organic disorder, classified by the World Health Organisation (ICD-10 G93.3) as a neurological illness.
Others develop severe M.E., completely housebound, wheelchair or bedbound and dependent upon carers for their everyday needs.
Invest in ME Research is a charity run entirely by dedicated volunteers to change the way that M.E. is perceived and treated in the medical profession and media. They are now well on the way to establishing a UK Centre of Excellence for M.E. with a biomedical research strategy underway to establish diagnostic tests & medical treatments for this disease with international cooperation.
They can only achieve all this with your support.
Help us celebrate the new era of biomedical research into M.E. Looking forward to establishing tests, treatments, and hopefully, cure.
