We at the Solve ME/CFS initiative are calling for the CDC to reinstate funding for ME/CFS and we need your help!
Please act now! The $5.4 million in CDC funding for ME/CFS has been stricken from the Senate’s version of the 2016 federal budget. As you can see from the graphic below, ME/CFS was the only disease to be reduced to $0.
You have an opportunity to directly impact federal funding for ME/CFS by sending this message to the four key staff members who serve the Senators on this budget committee.
Please take a moment to send them an email asking that the funds be reinstated immediately. We have posted a draft letter here for you to use. Feel free to revise as it suits you but note that time is of the essence. We need to have the emails sent within the next week to have any chance at reversing this decision and preserving our much-needed funding.
CAMPAIGN IS SUCCESSFULLY CONCLUDED – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
