Solve ME/CFS Initiative

Story

The Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) has been the leading organization focused on myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), commonly referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Having a family member who suffers from this disease, made me fully vested in assisting the organization with their cause.  They asked us to assist in documenting Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill.  We acquired many heartfelt stories from individuals and family member that suffer from ME/CFS.  Most flew in from around the country to speak with Senators and Representatives to gain funding for this severely underfunded disease.
 

Wow!!! I L O V E the video. Wonderful! Thank you for telling the story beautifully.
