Celebrity Ambassador and best-selling Scandinavian author Karin Alvtegen highlights the daily reality for ME/CFS sufferers in relation to the pandemic:
“For most people, the Covid-19 quarantine will soon be over. For many with ME/CFS, the quarantine will continue, as usual, year in and year out. Those of you who have the opportunity, please support the research at Open Medicine Foundation.”
Despite the gravity of the current situation, Jacqueline Ko, Celebrity Ambassador, opera singer, producer, & disability advocate demonstrates a reason to be hopeful:
“There are no diagnostic tests or treatments available for ME/CFS, so the research that OMF is undertaking is absolutely vital in changing that.
They offer hope not only to the millions of people currently grappling with this disease but to the many more who are now at risk of developing post-viral ME/CFS as a result of COVID-19. Please join me in supporting OMF’s May Momentum campaign and helping to accelerate their research.”
OMF’s newest Celebrity Ambassador, film & TV actress Jennie Jacques, has also added her influential voice to this important conversation, urging more awareness of ME/CFS:
“I ask everyone to start raising awareness for ME/CFS, now. Quarantine is forever for the people diagnosed with ME/CFS. We are experiencing a world pandemic driven by a viral infection, now is the time to take every action within our power.”
Amy Carlson, television actress and Celebrity Ambassador, has also spoken out, encouraging her fanbase to support OMF’s research. Amy dedicates her advocacy and fundraising in honor of her beloved friend Anne Berry, who suffered from ME/CFS and tragically passed in 2017:
“If you can donate to Open Medicine Foundation, please do, in any amount. Together we can help OMF – an organization that drives research to help people with ME/CFS and the myriad of other related diseases.”
Your contribution to #MayMomentum of any amount supports research for effective treatments, diagnostic tests, and a cure for ME/CFS.
