    Tell Your Senator to SUPPORT INCREASED FUNDING FOR POST-VIRAL-DISEASE RESEARCH INTO ME/CFS!

    Thanks to your hard work during ME/CFS Advocacy Week, the U.S. Senate is currently circulating our request to include ME/CFS research funding in the next COVID-19 package.
    Ask your Senator to sign-on to this effort today!

    Our champion, Senator Ed Markey, is leading our initiative to include ME/CFS research funding in future COVID-19 response legislation. If successful, this request would bolster ME/CFS research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by including an additional $60 million for expanded research opportunities looking at connections between ME/CFS and COVID-19 survivors.

    ME/CFS epidemics have historically followed viral outbreaks and experts are estimating significant surges in ME/CFS cases following the COVID-19 pandemic. It is essential that as many Senators as possible join this action in a united voice to call for increased funding for post-viral-disease research into ME/CFS.

    Please contact your Senators TODAY and ask them to ask them to sign-on to this effort.
