Our second annual #MayMomentum campaign begins today!

In recognition of May ME / CFS Awareness month, this campaign is a special effort by OMF and our community of supporters to increase awareness of ME / CFS and raise funding to accelerate urgently needed biomedical research.

There are many ways you can support #MayMomentum, and we encourage you to join us. Visit our May Momentum webpage to discover the option that’s best for you. You can show the world what ME / CFS looks like via a digital billboard in Times Square (in New York City), and find other ways to make a difference.

Be certain to follow us on social media during the month of May. We’ll share stories from OMF volunteers and researchers, news about worldwide organizing and events, updates about how to get involved, and more. We encourage you to stay tuned and support #May Momentum in whatever ways you’re able. We’re working hard to make major breakthroughs in ME / CFS research, and this month your support will make a greater impact, and help us achieve more extensive and deeper research this year.

Last year, we chose to call this campaign #MayMomentum because we recognized meaningful change was taking place. In the year since, we’ve seen research and awareness advance markedly. We invite you to help make #MayMomentum a success and ensure that 2019 is the most significant year ever for groundbreaking ME / CFS research.

P.S. The Share your photo in Times Square campaign closes on May 6. Please donate and submit your photo today.
