Tannenbaum on ME / CFS Alert about Fundraising and our Primary Research Goal

YouTube video

A champion of ME / CFS patients, Llewellen King, interviews our executive director about fundraising and what will attract government research funding, pharmaceutical companies, and large foundations.

King, who is reporter and commentator on national politics and host of his own television show, became interested in ME / CFS after his colleague was afflicted. His first report drew such a response, that he has become an advocate, using his media platform to analyze the obstacles to progress and push for awareness.

We appreciate his loyalty over years, now. And as is mentioned in this video, we need more to get involved.
