Rainbow at shoreline

The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association, a 501(c)3 founded in 1985, exists to meet the needs of patients with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) or FM (Fibromyalgia), their families and loved ones. The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association works to educate health-care providers and the general public regarding these severely-disabling physical illnesses. We also support patients and their families and advocate for more effective treatment and research.

New Strategic Plan!

We are excited to announce a new strategic plan for the Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association! We have spent the last year crafting a bold, ambitious and inclusive plan to guide our work in supporting people with ME/CFS and FM and their families, educating health care providers, advocating for social services and building a sustainable future for MassME. A big thank you to those who were introduced to, and who helped refine, the strategic plan during the small group meetings we held this past spring. And a big "Welcome!" to some of our new members who are already benefiting from initiatives described in the plan, such as our expanded support group program. A summary of the plan is included below. For those of you with the energy and interest to delve into the details, please find the full strategic plan here. Let us know what you think!
