In may, myself and some of my friends/family will be doing a short walk, to help raise funds for ME research UK. Please give this a share and donate anything you can.
"....doctors do not treat us and science does not study us. How could a disease this common and this devastating have been forgotten by medicine?" Jennifer BreaME Research UK believes that only biomedical research can find the causes of ME/CFS, improve diagnosis and treatment, and, ultimately, arrive at a cure. That’s why research is our focus. We've awarded 47 grants since 2000 and invested over £1.5million. But research is expensive and becoming more so every day. That’s the challenge we face, and that’s why we need your help.
It’s said that 17 million people in the world have ME/CFS – but this figure is no more than a rough guess based on crude prevalence estimates from developed countries (0.2 to 0.4%, including children) applied to the 7 billion inhabitants of planet Earth! In fact, rigorous, robust estimates of the occurrence of the illness in each country are needed, particularly to plan healthcare and allocate funding for research.
