Thanks to matching donors, every dollar you donate to Open Medicine Foundation any day of the week will be TRIPLE MATCHED now through International Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2020. Please join in me in accelerating research of ME/CFS by donating today: OMF.ngo/TripleTuesday2020

Sample text example for Facebook and Instagram:

As some of you know, I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). I’m excited to share that OMF is kicking off their annual #TripleTuesdayOMF campaign today! Thanks to generous matching donors, every dollar you donate to OMF any day of the week will be triple matched now through International Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2020!

Why is this important? ME/CFS is a devastating, life-altering, multi-system disease affecting up to 2.5 million Americans (or 20 million people worldwide), and many more may become afflicted in the aftermath of COVID-19.

While its impact is widespread and devastating, relatively little is known about the disease, no FDA approved treatments exist, and patients are left to deal with the illness with little help from the medical establishment, in many cases for decades

Fortunately, there is now a committed community of scientists, doctors, and patients raising awareness and making great strides in finding treatments that bring ME/CFS patients some relief and hope for a normal life in the future. Open Medicine Foundation is leading research and making real headway.

When you donate, you help to accelerate this critical research, giving hope to millions.
