CFS/ME is no trivial illness. CFS sufferers experience severe malaise with flu-like symptoms, overwhelming exhaustion of both muscle and mind, loss of short-term memory, loss of concentration, gastro-intestinal problems, joint pain, muscle pain, migraine and insomnia. A special feature of the disease is that the condition waxes and wanes; this can occur within an hour, a day or over the years. The social consequences are frequently severe, marriages breakdown, careers are ruined, children are unable to attend school and students have to abandon university courses. At the moment there is no cure for this devastating disease.
We believe that this disease can and will be conquered, but it will need the dedicated work of distinguished research scientists and the determination of people in the community to bring this about. The CFS Research Foundation believes that it plays a pivotal role in achieving this.
Maximum Funds go to Research
If you would like to raise money to support research funded by the Foundation why not build your own Fundraising Page at Everyclick. We use Everyclick because they charge the lowest commission so more of the money you raise goes to research.
Support CFS/ME Research
Research needs substantial sums of money to enable it to go forward. There are many ways you can add your support. You can send us a cheque or make a donation online. We have a leaflet, which we will be happy to send you, which gives some ideas how you can help raise funds. These ideas, some of which came from our supporters, show how you can raise funds even if you are bedbound or able only to undertake simple events. For the recovered or family members or carers there are more ambitious projects.
