“Linda is an irresistible force and her warmth and intense commitment to finding a diagnosis and cure have brought me a friend, ally and ray of hope amidst the dreadful darkness of this disease. In addition, as a physician I became even more outraged at the failures of most of the medical world to show interest in and help fellow sufferers with this. So I have become deeply committed to fight for all of us with whatever energy and resources I have to bring attention to this disease and its complex biological processes. With the knowledge gained from the necessary research which is beginning, there will be enormous benefit to all of us far beyond even the world of ME / CFS.”
