The members and board of directors of FM-CFS Canada at our recent AGM, resolved to file for voluntary dissolution of FM-CFS Canada and transfer its remaining assets to a fund set up to enable research and educational material related to the pain aspects of Fibromyalgia, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.The process of dissolution is now well advanced so we are now letting our members know that we are no longer able to accept donations to the charity and any that we have recently received will be transferred to the new research fund and donors advised.
The new research fund has been created at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and donors will be able to add to this fund. I will be adding instructions on how this can be done on this page at a later time.
We will maintain our Facebook and LinkedIn groups. However, we will need to take our telephone support and website down as a consequence of this change. We will work with other charities to offer them content and material that they might find useful.
We want to thank all the donors, volunteers and supporters for all their efforts in helping us deal with the stigma, lack of medical support and lack of research into these prevalent illnesses.
It is this last item (research) that we have been focused on over the last several years. We have made contributions to the research into the use of Rituximab through Invest in ME. We have also funded educational activities within the Canadian Medical schools with our annual essay competition. From these activities we can see that research is key and that we should focus our efforts and resources in driving the research agenda in some way. Please support this research if you can.
