ME / CFS Research is soaring!

#TripleTuesdayOMFCA Spotlight – Chris Armstrong, PhD

Every donation today through December 3 will be tripled!


I’m getting in touch with you today to share my personal perspective on why your support is so vital to OMF’s work. Donations from community members like you allow OMF to fund critical research around the globe to identify a biomarker, effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for ME / CFS.

The community’s support has allowed OMF to fund the establishment of ME / CFS Collaborative Research Centers at Stanford, Harvard and Uppsala University.  These research centers not only provide a wealth of experience, but they also enable the building of a network with smaller research groups to share and retain a broader knowledge of ME / CFS. It’s my great privilege to be a part of this work.

I invite you to make a donation to OMF today to help accelerate this urgent research together. 

There’s no better time to give, since donations will be automatically TRIPLED as part of our Triple Giving Tuesday OMF campaign if they are made any day of the week today through International Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

With the guidance of our stellar Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), researchers are gathering evidence for the biological cause of ME / CFS. These efforts are leading to a deeper understanding of the disease that will help identify effective treatments and ensure every patient has a bright future.

By making your donation today, you are directly helping to advance research and giving this robust team of over 100 international researchers the resources they need to find answers.

On behalf of myself and my colleagues, thank you for supporting our Triple Giving Tuesday OMF campaign and moving this critical research forward.

With hope,
