- Federal funding for this illness is about $5 per patient per year.
- We can band together to increase funding. Small amounts add up and make a difference.
- Successful pilot studies can lead to major funding.
- Activists for breast cancer, Alzheimers, and autism have been successful in raising money and awareness – we can be too!
Our Association will add everyone’s contributions together, and send the pooled funds to the beneficiary the Board has selected for 2015 - Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI). SMCI has focused on providing seed funding for pilot studies in new fields of research, and has pioneered a collaborative process among researchers, which accelerates progress. The SMCI research program is funded entirely by donors; the organization has not accepted any government funding since 2010.
Donations may also help support the Solve CFS BioBank, which provides an opportunity for patients to register to participate in research studies.
All gifts will be used to support research. Gifts of any size will be used to help find a cure for this disease.
