Celebrate May Awareness Month

Accelerate research to improve patients’ lives!

I am writing to you today to share some very exciting news. Last month OMF received over $1 MILLION in donations. Donors large and small have stepped up to accelerate the pace of research. These generous donations will help to scale up the development of new diagnostic and treatment technologies, help fast-track the screening of candidate FDA pre-approved drugs on ME / CFS cells in the lab and other exciting projects. We are grateful that these donors share our passion and vision for a world free from ME / CFS. As we celebrate May Awareness month, we join together with the ME / CFS community in spreading education and awareness, and hope for a cure.

I would like to give you the opportunity to join these generous individuals by increasing your support of OMF by becoming a monthly donor. If you are already a recurring donor, thank you for helping to keep up our research momentum. Monthly donations keep research moving forward. Dr. Davis has recorded a brief personal message inviting you to support research. Please take a moment to watch it.

A donation of any size, from $10 to $500, helps to secure the future of research. Become a monthly donor today.

As we celebrate and honor patients around the world for May 12th, join Team OMF to maximize the impact of your research donation and inspire HOPE for millions of patients worldwide. DONATE TODAY!

We also invite you to watch Dr. Davis’ recent research update. If you have not already seen it, or perhaps you would like to review, this update will provide you with an understanding of the innovative and efficient research you are championing.

Together with hope,
