The purpose of this organization is to increase awareness of Chronic Fatigue and
Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), also known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and by other
names, is a complex and debilitating chronic illness that affects the brain and multiple body systems. On this portion of
our website you can find detailed information about CFIDS, its symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, important research findings
and how it affects the lives of those who live with it everyday.
Our mission is to further promote CFIDS in our organization and to members of
the community. We strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach by:
Building recognition of CFIDS as a serious, widespread medical disorder;
Securing a meaningful response to CFIDS from the federal government;
Stimulating high quality CFIDS research;
Improving health-care providers' abilities to detect, diagnose and manage CFIDS;
Providing information to persons with CFIDS and enabling the CFIDS community to
speak with a collective voice.
