ME/CFS Advocacy Week Continues…Can You Hear M.E. Now?

Can you hear M.E. Now? Call Congress Today!

 

 

We touched over 47% of congress yesterday. But we’re not done yet! Today we’re focusing on phone calls to DC offices. Use the D.C. Remote Advocate kit to help you make your message *RING* true. Today, you can support our call for $60m of new funding for ME/CFS research by taking the following actions:

 

 

1. Call Your Members of Congress

(Total time: about 10 mins)
Your call will only take 2-3 minutes each, where you will either speak with a staff member or leave a voicemail. Each call and voicemail are tallied up and provided to your Member of Congress! The more calls, the better.

We want to flood Congress with calls during ME/CFS Advocacy Week, especially on our dedicated “Can you hear M.E. now?” action on Thursday, April 23.
If you have the energy, you should make THREE phone calls:

  1. Your 1st Senator
  2. Your 2nd Senator
  3. Your Representative

Increasingly, there are reports of COVID-19 survivors who aren’t getting better. Fever. Brain Fog. Joint pain. A body made out of lead. Feeling like a dead battery. A story that people with ME/CFS recognize and know intimately. Solve M.E. is calling for immediate response measures for ME/CFS in the next COVID-19 response package. We are recommending $60m to be authorized for NIH post-viral neuroimmune research, specifically focusing on ME/CFS and COVID-19.

We need your voice to urge Congress to authorize $60 million for NIH post-viral neuroimmune research, specifically focusing on ME/CFS and COVID-19.
