DeFreitas on Retrovirus

"And suddenly I could see myself 20 years from now, when I'm a high school
biology teacher and someone calls and says, 'Hey, they just found a
retrovirus in CFS'. And maybe that's how it will happen. And I know how I'll
feel - it'll feel great" Elaine DeFrietas
 
Chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)
patients, of course, weren't the only ones to feel the sting of this
mysterious illness - their advocates have as well. Certainly there's no more
disheartening story on the researcher end than Elaine DeFreitas whose career
rose and fell on the horns of the dilemma that has been chronic fatigue
syndrome.

Check out the story of the story of the First Retrovirus in ME/CFS on the
new Front Page section of the Phoenix Rising Forums.
