#MillionsMissing Visibility Action: Columbia, SC (Presentation of State Resolution for ME)
MAY 2, 2019 - STATE RESOLUTION RAISING ME AWARENESS BEING PRESENTED
We need your help raising awareness about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) in South Carolina where there is a paucity of medical care available to patients with ME, minimal medical awareness and essentially no research activity. Please join me in Colombia at the presentation of a State Resolution raising ME Awareness.
State Senator Grooms and Representative Mace have recognized the need to raise awareness about ME and sponsored a State Resolution declaring May as ME Awareness Month and May 12, 2019 as ME Awareness Day. The Resolution was passed and will be presented on May 2 at the State House. You can view the resolution here: https://www.scstatehouse.gov/sess123_2019-2020/bills/31.htm
Please join us in Columbia on May 2 at 10:30 am at the State House. The Resolution will be presented in chambers and followed by a press conference and meetings with other State Senators and Representatives.
What a fabulous way to acknowledge our elected State officials and raise awareness about ME!

If you are unable to join, please consider sending me a personal message, note or pictures that I can bring to Columbia. It would be an honor to talk about the people with ME who couldn't be there for the presentation of the Resolution. Please tell me a bit about yourself.

2. How many years you have been sick?
3. Any other messages that you would like to convey to our elected state officials.
