It will soon be M.E. awareness month and May 12th is International Awareness Day and this year it marks the 26th anniversary since the late patient and staunch advocate, Thomas (Tom) Hennessey Jr, designated May 12th as the international awareness day.
Tom designated May 12 as the special day to commemorate the birth date of Florence Nightingale and her struggle with chronic illness.
Each year May 12 is a growing global day of protests and demonstrations by people with M.E., their carers, family and friends.
I know it's very hard, if not impossible, for those of us who are ill to be able to contribute but every little helps.
This excellent blog gives plenty of ideas on how we can all help.
During May I will be sharing and reposting some of my blogs and my poems.
In the week leading up to May 12 I will be donating ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES OF MY BOOKS TO INVEST IN ME RESEARCH.
My books are in paperback and kindle versions and are available on Amazon in most countries.
Here are the links for Amazon UK
My A-Z of M.E.
So many symptoms
Life, love, loss and whole lot more
Life, love, loss and a little more
I hope you will find some way of taking part in raising awareness and understanding during May.
We need the suffering to end.
We need more funding.
We need more research and studies.
We need better care.
We need better understanding.
We need to end the neglect and isolation.
We need to be believed.
We need more people to fight for us.
We need to increase awareness.
We all need to come together until a cure is found.
SO PLEASE JOIN ME AND LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
