Massachusetts Congressional delegation supports ME/CFS patients

The entire Massachusetts Congressional delegation (two Senators and all nine Representatives) signed a statement of support for ME/CFS patients which was shown on the occasion of the screening of the documentary film “Unrest” on November 12, 2017 at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA. Our delegation's support for patients with ME/CFS was projected on the big screen at the event, which was attended by more than 360 healthcare professionals, ME/CFS patients, families, and supporters from Massachusetts and New England (VT, ME, CT, RI).  We were proud to announce that Massachusetts is the first state that has had such a statement from every member of its congressional delegation.

Thank Senator Markey for Promising to Help ME Patients

"I will be your advocate for more research" Massachusetts senator Ed Markey promised an ME patient at a Town Hall meeting on Feb. 23rd.

Read the story, view the video clip, and then call Senator Markey's office (202-224-2742) to thank him for promising in Northampton to advocate for M.E. on Capitol Hill. If you are an ME patient let them know. If you are a Massachusetts resident be sure to say that. Our Association will be following up with Senator Markey to let him know how he can help!
