We Want to Hear Your Perspective!

From the Desk of Kim McCleary
History isn’t just about the past – it’s about the people and events that have helped shape the present and exploring patterns that may enlighten us about the future.CFIDS Association president and CEO Kim McCleary shares her take on the subject.

Historically Speaking
Together we’re making CFS history… not only in the ways our collective efforts shape the course of the fight against CFS, but also in the way every research finding, donation, and compassionate action chips away at this devastating illness. Here’s how the CFIDS Association plans to mark the passage of time, as the “good fight” moves into its third decade.

People Making History
People make up a community and fuel a cause. So any look at CFS history must start with the people who’ve shaped it – in ways both large and small. Here are a few profiles of everyday people who’ve become champions of the cause.

Ten Discoveries about the Biology of CFS
Twenty years of research into CFS have uncovered many biologic findings about the way this illness affects the body. Here’s a “print-and-go” handout listing 10 key discoveries, as described by Anthony Komaroff, MD, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a widely respected authority on CFS.

We Want to Hear Your Perspective!
This year marks 20 years since the CFIDS Association of America was founded. It also marks 20 years in the fight against CFS for the entire CFS community. As we reflect on our shared history and commitment to eradicating this illness, we’d like your perspective on the most important individuals, organizations, events, research findings and achievements of the past 20 years. Please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey and e-mail it back to us.
