Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

The amount of funding allocated for CFS/ME research is shameful at $7 million.
Obesity is funded at $931 million. MS is funded at $98 Million. HIV/AIDS is funded at $3 Billion. And it is wonderful that headway is being made on treatments for those diseases.
How can CFS/ME make progress toward a cure at this level of funding? Why isn't the research giant UPMC doing studies for CFS/ME patients?
Many of us are aging with CFS and the prospects are dismal.
It is very difficult for PwCFS to be their own advocates. We need help from outside the patient cohort. https://report.nih.gov/categorical_spendin…
