Facebook | The CFIDS Association of America: Kim McCleary's Statement

I am reminded of the first public ICC meeting in 1993, held in Atlanta, at which federal agencies threatened to define CFS out of existence by eliminating the 11 symptom criteria and focusing solely on chronic fatigue. Now, this CDC plan imposes a similar death sentence. We implore the CFSAC to aggressively challenge this plan to protect hard-earned progress of the past 16 years and not waste $25 million that should fuel important research.

In conclusion, the federal resources being applied to CFS must catch up with the magnitude of this condition, and must – at least – match the proportion of private investments. The momentum is building, and the time is now to solve CFS.
