http://thirdforcenews.org.uk/tfn-news/campaigners-call-for-more-me-funding Campaigners are calling on the Scottish Government to provide specialist care and funding for research into ME. Jennifer Brea, director of the Oscar-nominated documentary Unrest, is backing the call and will join campaigners at an event being held at Holyrood on Tuesday. Unrest won a special jury award at last year's Sundance Film Festival and shows how Jennifer and her husband Omar battled to cope with ME when she became bedridden while studying for a PhD at Harvard University. Some 21,000 people in Scotland are currently affected by ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) also known as chronic fatigue syndrome. Janet Sylvester, from Edinburgh, whose daughter Emma, 24, has a severe form of the illness, said the #MEAction event would raise awareness of the condition and call for more to be done.
