Dr. Collins, Please Continue NIH Efforts for M.E.

In keeping with my advocacy for ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), I have made available a letter (see link below) addressed to Dr. Collins, Director of the National Institute of Health (NIH).  It is signed by eleven members of Congress, dated March 2014.  It reminds Dr. Collins of the supportive recommendations for research and funding for ME and CFS, promised by NIH back in 2011.

We advocates will continue to attempt to bring to the forefront, recognition that M.E. is an invisible, multi-symptom, neuroimmune, chronic illness that is changing and taking, many lives of over 1 million of our nation’s citizens and between 17-20 million sufferers globally.
