ATTENTION YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

Speak Up About ME invites you to add your voice!

May 12th is ME/CFS Awareness Day.  On May 11, 2011 as part of my testimony at The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC)  in Washington,  I will speak on behalf of those who became ill with ME/CFS before the age of 22 years.

If you had early onset ME/CFS (no matter where you live), you can participate by giving me your name  (real or alias) , age at onset, age at diagnosis, current age and the country you live in.
