Review for American Myalgic Encephalomyelitis & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society, Whately, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  


I am SO thankful to Erica Verrillo and the American Myalgic
Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society (AMMES). I
have had severe and chronic CFIDS/ME/CFS for approximately 24 years. Previously I had some financial help from my family but due to a
family crisis I was left needing to quickly move to an apartment. For
the first time in my life I requested financial help from people other
than my immediate family. A woman in a FaceBook group referred me to
AMMES and gave me the website. The application for the emergency
grant money is simple, which is so great since part of our illness is
mental fog and such exhaustion that menial tasks can be quite
complicated. I completed and mailed the application and I quickly
received the grant money for my rent and electric bill that month! I
am SO grateful for AMMES! What a huge blessing this has been
especially right before the holiday season. AMMES is a much needed
resource for the CFIDS/ME/CFS community and as more exposure to our illness is happening. I recommend that people donate to this wonderful
organization to help more chronically ill people who have emergency
financial needs. Thank you AMMES!!!”
Thanks for everything Erica and AMMES

Review for Pandora Org, Traverse City, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pandora Org is absolutely amazing! I HIGHLY recommend this organization! Lori Chapo Kroger kindly reached out to me after a friend contacted her about an emergency move I had to do. I’ve had chronic and severe Cfids/me/cfs for 23 years and the stress of having to move and the financial stresses of moving while being sick are taking a toll. I can’t tell everyone enough how much it meant to have someone just kindly contact me and offer so many meals. Lori then had Sandy Adkins Sizemore contact me to order Mom’s Meals. The kindness each exhibit is a huge blessing to people who are enduring the stresses that come while being chronically ill. In only a few days I received such a nice big box with 16 meals, fruit cups, rolls, juice boxes, cookies, and an activity book! Thank you SO much Lori, Sandy, and Pandora Organization!
