This year I am proud to support Open Medicine Foundation (OMF)’s annual May Momentum Campaign. (Brieﬂy describe who you are, your connection to OMF, and why you support our mission!)
In recognition of May ME/CFS Awareness month, this campaign is a special effort by OMF to increase awareness of ME/CFS, Long COVID, and related multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD) and raise funds to accelerate urgently needed research.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a devastating and complex disease that can present as an array of life-altering symptoms that may change over time and differ from patient to patient. Millions more are now at risk with #LongCOVID.
There are also no diagnostic tests or treatments available for ME/CFS. OMF seeks to change this by supporting medical education and research to ﬁnd effective treatments.
