    A day to remember everyone who is suffering or who has ever suffered from Severe and Very Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
    Severe ME Understanding & Remembrance Day
    : This day aims to bring public attention to the illness for the sake of all those presently suffering from Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and to remember all those who have died from ME.

    A day to honour the strength of spirit of all those who have endured and continue to endure decades of suffering and profound physical dysfunction and yet receive little, or no recognition or help, but rather continue to experience gross misrepresentation and misinterpretation of their illness and profound disability."

    Raising Awareness of Severe ME – A Call for Your Case Studies|15th July 2020
    "
    In the run-up to Severe M.E. Week (3rd August), we’re looking for people with Severe M.E. who would like to tell their stories.

    We want to talk about the key issues that affect arguably the most neglected section of our community, and plan on raising awareness throughout the week commencing Monday, 3rd August.

    We’re particularly interested in hearing from people with Severe M.E. and their experiences of carers, and the care needed for someone with severe ME.

    If you or your carer would like to be involved, you must be comfortable sharing your identity and photographs in either the news-media (newspapers) and on the ME Association website and social media platforms.

    If interested, please get in touch by Wednesday 25th July, and provide the following information:

    • Your name, age, where you live, and confirm that you have or have had severe M.E.
    • A short summary of your story and experiences: in no more than 200 words.
    • Attach good quality photographs of yourself that you feel best represents your current circumstances.
    • Title your email ‘Severe ME Campaign’ and send to feedback@meassociation.org.uk

    I wasn't sure where to put this. Kara Jane has severe ME and she has recorded a single and an album.
    The single has been released today. Baby Breathe. The album Its Still M.E. will be released on Aug 8th.
    Money raised will go towards establishing a post mortem research facility for those that die with or from ME .

    one song on the album she says belongs to the ME community - Remember Us.
