May 12th International ME/CFS, FM, and MCS Awareness Day

We are working together to proclaim May 12th International Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Awareness Day. The National ME/FM Action Network and May 12th International Awareness Day are encouraging people to light up a private or public building in their town or city blue, purple, and/or green. By lighting up buildings around the world we are standing together to raise awareness and fight stigma for ME/CFS, FM, and MCS.

1.4 million Canadians suffer from these debilitating illnesses, yet many people around the world are unaware of their impact. We need Canadians (and people around the world) to write their MPs and MLAs asking them to proclaim May 12th an International Awareness Day in their area. An English example letter is provided here.

Here is a quick video inviting you to Light Up the Night. Do your part. Light up your front porch, city hall, or town bridge blue, purple, and/or green for May 12th International ME/CFS, FM, and MCS Awareness Day.
