I've been working with this organization for decades, and have nothing but positive things to say about it. They are ethical, superbly informed, and a marvelous resource for patients. They've been fighting for research, understanding and recognition for this disease, and the decisions they have made are brilliant.

The researchers this organization funds are world class. I have seen several of them present their findings and the progress they are making is very exciting. The leadership is tireless and focused yet willing to pursue any approach that will cure this disease.

One of my best friends has received tremendous support from CFIDS and its predecessor organization for nearly three decades. It has been a lifeline of information and assistance to her in dealing with ME/CFS. I hope your organization continues to perform research, provide information and help to those with this incredibly debilitating disease. Keep up the great work!
