FFAME – Family, Friends and Allies for ME – is a network of support for family, friends, caretakers and allies for ME to come together, support one another, learn more about the disease and the challenges of improving the lives of people with ME. The group also aims to equip allies who wish to engage in advocacy work with the knowledge and tools to do so.

The founders of FFAME are three parents of offspring with ME:  Bobbi Ausubel, Denise Lopez-Majano, and Jane S.
