The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Foundation or CFS Foundation, is to serve as the major resource for available treatments, research, and education of the syndrome. In the United States alone "between 836,000 and 2,500,000 individuals of all ages, races, and sexes are believed to be afflicted with ME/CFS, with millions more afflicted by ME/CFS worldwide, and the vast majority of individuals with ME/CFS are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed" it was published by congress in 2018. We are planning to work with lobbyists to make sure the needed funding gets allocated to research ME/CFS. Whereas the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences "HMD" has noted a ‘‘paucity of research’’ on ME/CFS and that ‘‘more research is essential’’; individuals with ME/CFS struggle to find doctors who are willing and able to care for them and ME/CFS is included in less than 1⁄3 of medical curricula" We are commit to provide ready access, for patients, and those close to the patients who get first hand experience on the debilitating chronic disease. We will provide education to patients and their families, health professionals, the public, corporates and the government, to make sure Chronic Fatigue Syndrome "CFS" is taken serious, and to help overcome the stigma about sickness. We will ensure support for broader and better access is provided to those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
