To Support Appropriations Actions!

 

Our champion, Senator Markey, led TWO requests that can increase funding for ME research!

 

1. Requesting $9.9 million for ME/CFS programs at the CDC (Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee)

 

2. Adding ME/CFS to the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (Defense Subcommittee)

 

We are continuing this effort, because while the House Labor-HHS Appropriations Committee included CDC's existing ME/CFS funding ($5.4 million) in its proposed budget, they did not include our requested $4.5 million increase. Now we turn to the Senate to see if we can get the $4.5 million increase through there. We need your help to make this happen! Your voice makes all the difference!

Please contact your Senators ASAP and ask them to support these efforts.
