This ME/CFS institute gave us all false hope! Believe the Whittemore Peterson Institute knew their XMRV findings were wrong, hence why Dr. Knoxx & Dr. Peterson left. Yet, they continued to take from the "hopeful"; until they were caught in Ottawa. That's when Mrs. Whittemore fired Dr. Mitovits. Very hard to believe she didn't know what was going on. After-all; her husband declared he was broke a year prior. Greed at it's best.

This "charity" is run by a socialite whose husband was one of the most powerful political lobbyists in Nevada. Now Harvey Whittemore's house of cards is falling, and it is taking his wife and her Institute along with it. Before anyone gives a dime to this charity, he should google "Harvey Whittemore" and "Annette Whittemore" and read the results. Even if they wanted to do meaningful medical research, they would not be able to accomplish that since they fired their only competent research scientist in Sept. 2011.

Review from Guidestar
February 2, 2011

Just a couple of years after its founding, WPI is the clear world leader in the science of neuro-immune diseases including ME. They were founded with a $5M donation from the Whittemore family, whose daughter Andrea suffers from ME. They do incredible high-level science, collaborating on studies with NCI and Cleveland Clinic. Their work has been also been confirmed by NIH, FDA, Harvard and Cornell Med Schools.

Unfortunately, NIH has not granted WPI any money, so it must rely on patient donations. PLEASE SUPPORT WPI any way you can including financially!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being positively impacted by WPI's work, like every pwME.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them a lot more funding.!
