What you need to know: #Millions Missing Week Campaign NZ

This May 2019, M.E. Awareness NZ will be joining in on visibility events around the world by joining #MillionsMissing Week May 5th-12th (an International ME/CFS Awareness Raising Campaign Week run by #ME Action) - to continue to fight for health equality for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). We demand equitable research funding and care, accurate medical education, and an end to the harm and stigma.

If you live with ME/CFS (or know someone who does), we invite you to dig deep and tell your story in words or images for our online campaign in NZ for this #MillionsMissing Week.
These stories will be highlighted throughout that week via our social media channels M.E. Awareness NZ Facebook Page, twitter account and instagram, please also follow us on social media and share our posts/re-tweet.

We hope you can find a creative way to share your story that you are comfortable with. We want to give visibility to the estimated 18,000 adults and 2,000 children & young people that live in NZ with ME/CFS, we need to put our faces and stories to this disease, to humanise it and localise it here in our NZ context, and to help the public see that this is happening right here in our home country, in our cities, to our children, friends, colleagues and whānau.

When you have images and text ready please email to m.e.awareness.nz@gmail.com - by Sunday 21st April if possible but late submissions are welcome! You don't have to provide your name on the content, if that makes you feel uncomfortable., but it would be helpful if you could provide your city. If you need support with editing /format /layout, just ask in your email.

Alternatively, please join our Facebook group as per link above for more up to date information/prompts for the campaign!
