Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Long Covid

May Momentum is right around the corner!

We are thrilled to announce that May Momentum, one of Open Medicine Foundation’s (OMF) largest fundraising campaigns of the year, kicks off on May 1, 2021!

In recognition of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS) Awareness month, May Momentum is a special annual effort by OMF to increase awareness and raise funds to advance urgently needed research into ME/CFS and related chronic, complex diseases, including Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Post COVID Syndrome (also known as Long COVID).

During the 2021 #MayMomentum campaign, we will share inspiring stories of people within our community, update you on exciting research developments and celebrate the advancements in our understanding made possible by your generosity. 

And for the first time ever, you will hear directly from the Directors of the OMF funded Research Collaborative in special video updates throughout May.

Since OMF’s start in 2012, we have raised over $30 Million dollars, facilitated the establishment of the prestigious, five member, ME/CFS Collaborative and brought together an alliance of brilliant scientific minds dedicated to ending ME/CFS and related chronic, complex diseases. Our accomplishments to date are only made possible by our valued community’s generous support, large and small. 

This year, we invite you to help us continue energizing research efforts by supporting May Momentum. Check out the following ways to get involved and ensure this year’s campaign is a success!

We are passionate about winning this fight! OMF works every day to push research forward, seek new collaborative opportunities, and attract the resources necessary to win the fight against ME/CFS and related diseases, returning millions to the healthy lives they deserve.

We sincerely hope you will join our worldwide community and support OMF during this year’s #MayMomentum campaign. Together, we can amplify our mission to end the suffering endured by millions worldwide.

If you are able, please consider contributing to our effort to uncover research-based answers.

Help us improve the quality of life for all sufferers of ME/CFS and other chronic complex diseases, such as Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
