Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association is an all-volunteer organization. Please become a member to help us to continue our work and respond to the many needs of the patient community. All of our income is used to support essential services.
An annual Membership Contribution of $25/year for Individuals, and $40 for a Family (two or more related individuals), is requested for membership. Larger membership contributions help support those who are unable to pay.
If you are unable to afford the Membership Contribution, see our criteria for courtesy membership.
We use your support to:
Publish our website which provides up-to-date information about ME/CFS and fibromyalgia covering a broad range of topics, sends out alerts about current news and developments, and accepts requests for support services
Maintain our Information Line where trained volunteers respond to general questions about the two illnesses (which often overlap) and serve as a gateway to the Association's support services
Assist with referrals to healthcare providers
Give guidance on disability process and related issues
Better educate and expand awareness within the community
Establish a public information group to reach out to various forms of media
Improve communication with pertinent state and federal agencies
Sponsor public educational lectures
Be advocates at all possible levels (local, state, national)
All contributions or donations are gratefully acknowledged and are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. We thank you for your support.
