Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS) affects over 20 million people.
Established in 2012, Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) leads the largest, concerted worldwide nonprofit effort to diagnose,
treat, and prevent ME / CFS and related chronic, complex diseases such as Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS),
Open Medicine Foundation Canada (OMFCA) received Charity Status from the Canada Revenue Agency on June 6, 2019.
We launched our relationship with the Collaborative Research Center at CHU Sainte-Justine /Université de Montréal,
on December 11, 2019.
OMF and OMFCA add urgency to the search for answers by driving transformational philanthropy and investments into global research. We have raised over $24 Million from private donors, and facilitated and funded the establishment of
five prestigious ME / CFS Collaborative Research Centres.
The five, OMF-funded, ME / CFS Collaborative Research Centres have launched an international study of the possible conversion of COVID-19 patients to ME / CFS.
This study, which seeks to learn about the pathways involved in the development of ME / CFS, can lead to biomarkers, new treatments, and prevention strategies.
Please help us expand our research efforts across the globe.
Every donation brings us closer to a fully funded research effort and the answers we all seek.
