Review for Open Medicine Foundation, Agoura Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have suffered from ME for 28 years. Due to this illness I have lost a career, the chance to get married and have a family. I spend most of my time housebound, and alone. This is not the life I envisaged in my twenties. My life effectively came to an abrupt stop at the age of 27.
During the last 28 years there has been very little research into ME/CFS, particularly biomedical research. The Open Medicine Foundation are one of the few groups of researchers working in this field. Research gives ME patients hope, the OMF gives us hope.
Please let's not loose yet another generation to this dreadful illness because of lack of research. Support the OMF.
