I think a lot of PWME feel guilty about raising money for ME biomedical
research themselves as at first it sounds rather selfish like asking for
something for yourself. I know I felt like this for ages until I
realised that the general public were not going to do it as ME has had
such a bad press and is not a popular cause.
So if we and our friends and families don't try to raise funds for
biomedical research into ME, certainly no-one else will, and when you
think of all the youngsters with ME who are missing out on so much it is
incumbent on us who do know the reality of ME to raise awareness and do
our best to raise funds or encourage those close to us to do so.
You can find lots of fundraising ideas here for both PWME and for their
healthy friends and family:
