****************************************

The Georgetown University located in washington Dc is conducting a
very important study reguarding CFS. They have identified a specific
set of proteins found in the cerebral spinal fluid in patients with
CFS. These proteins are not found in healthy people and maybe the
actual pathology of this disease itself.Upon enrollment I was informed
that they are in desperite need of healthy control subjects that are
WILLING TO HAVE A LUMBAR PUNCTARE PERFORMED. My girlfriend has agreed
to participate with me. I am urging each and every one of you to try
to recruit a healthy volunteer as these findings may very well lead to
a cure of this horrific illness. Study participeints will be required
to stay in the hospital for a total of three days where they will
undergo testing and will be paid in the amount of $400.00 for their
time. I will post a link below for those of you who maybe interested.
Remember, it is up to us to make a difference! Lets solve CFS!!!
