Review for The CFIDS Association of America, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The CFIDS Association proactively encourages ME/CFS researchers with seed grant money. They are fill a niche for small researchers to prove their hypothoses and then to obtain much bigger grants from the NIH.

Review for PHOENIX RISING AN NEID CORPORATION, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Suffering with a poorly understood debilitating neuroimmune illness has wrecked havoc in my life. Phoenix Rising opened up my world to other sufferers just like me. They provided not only much needed information on medical care, treatments, and the latest research, but also a warm and supportive on-line community that reaches out to each other on a daily basis.

Review for The CFIDS Association of America, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had CFS for 5 years and have went from working in excess of 40 hours per week when healthy, to part-time and last year to totally disabled. I have a lot of time to lie down and think each day and I believe that my best chance of getting well is to support the CFIDS Association.

This organization has and continues to provide funds for innovative research projects that would likely not be done otherwise. One of the projects is even coming close to finding the first biomarkers for this disease!

Biomarkers would help doctors, for the first time, to recognize this illness in their patients. And biomarkers would justify more research grants, especially from the government. But mostly, this horrible illness will come a big step closer to being understood, treated, and possibly cured one day. I am betting my life on the CFIDS Association.

Role:  Donor & I am a patient and a donor.
