Let's Make a Million For Invest In ME!

Let’s Make a Million!

We invite you to join the expanding international community of supporters aiming to raise £1000,000 for Invest in ME Charity’s Biomedical Research Funds by May 2016.
Invest in ME (aka Invest in ME Research) is a small charity with a big cause – to establish a Centre of Excellence for Biomedical Research into ME – the first of its kind in UK/Europe and a hub for productive collaboration with biomedical researchers around the world.
Foundations for this collaboration have been laid and built upon over 10 years of the Invest in ME Conference (IIMEC) and 5 years of the Biomedical Researchers into ME Colloquium (BRMEC).
The ‘Let’s Do It for ME’ campaign, launched by patients to help raise funds for the research strategy, reached £500,000 by February 2015 and March began with a call to aim for a million.
The campaign is inclusive of all ages and levels of illness severity from bed-bound and tube-fed to healthy family members, friends, and other supporters affectionately known as ‘willing wellies’.
There are lots of ways to join in the fun for this important cause, from as easy as a couple of clicks to extreme challenges, and ways to raise funds for free, for example while shopping online.
Or you can simply donate to a specific project or to the general Invest in ME Research Fund.
Invest in ME is UK-registered, so UK tax-payers may also add Gift Aid to their donation.
The crowdfunding so far has enabled Invest in ME to get underway two vitally important projects led by researchers leading in their field: the role of the gut microbiome in ME, and B-cell research preceding a UK clinical treatment trial of the monoclonal antibody rituximab (rituxan).
Let’s help Invest in ME to see their translatonal biomedical research strategy through to fruition by raising the all-important funds.  The charity is run by dedicated volunteers. No frills or fuss. Let’s get diagnostic tests and treatments for ME. Let’s do research. Let’s Do It for ME!
Donate to the Invest in ME Gut Microbiome Research.
Donate to the Invest in ME Rituximab Research Fund.

 Black ME Voices: Q&A with Teona Studemire

With it being Black History Month, it was crucial to me to make sure we spotlighted someone from the ME/CFS and Long COVID community who is Black. Being Black and disabled is an entirely different experience. Not only do we deal with ableism, but we also deal with racism, especially medical racism. According to the
