The Canadians need our help in the Aviva Contest! Up to $150,000 in prize money could go to the new Complex Chronic Diseases Clinic in Vancouver, CA! The medical director is Dr. Alison Bested, a leading ME/CFS and FM clinician. The money won will be used for research equipment for a biobank. Research will benefit patients around the world affected by ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivities, and chronic Lyme disease.
The project qualified for the Semi-Finals in Round 1. Voting in the Semi-Finals runs from December 3-12. The top ten projects will be judged in the final phase of the competition to see how much each of them will receive.
