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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a 32 year old male with ME/CFS. I can barely walk much during the day, I push myself to work some small part-time jobs where I can sit and work, which still tires me out. This itself is difficult due to the cognitive dysfunction cfs causes patients, such as in my case.

Every day is like climbing a mountain, as soon as I wake up the morning stiffness is so severe my body almost can’t keep up with the pain.

The researchers investigating, finding, and presenting bio-markers that have validated CFS are all directly affiliated with the Open medicine foundation.

Their published scientific research and articles demonstrate the hard work and innovation they are bringing to the table to deal with this difficult challenge.

They are also actively looking for a cure, sympathetic to the needs of the CFS patient community.

In a way for many, OMF serves as a beacon of hope, or even our last bastion.

They have taken blood samples from me (and even my healthy relatives) many times and have run tests on them for their comparative studies, so I can personally say they are actively working on a day to day basis for the needs of the CFS community.

Please donate generously. Hopefully your funds can lead to a break through in one of the most devastating and debilitating sicknesses a person can deal with.

Thank you.
