Tell Congress to Support Funding Equality for ME


Our Ask

As the only moral response to more than thirty years of official and medical neglect of this illness, we demand that Congress increase NIH research funding to $250 million per year, a level proportionate to the disease’s severity, prevalence and impact.


Our Goal

50,000 signatures in total and at least 500 signatures from every state.

In order to accomplish this, we will need to recruit the help of able patients and healthy #MEAllies to bring the petition and its message out into the world and into our schools, churches, workplaces; into our local communities.
