Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) is organizing its second annual ME/CFS Advocacy Day on May 15. Patients, caregivers, and advocates will be on Capitol Hill in a lobbying effort to petition Congress to understand the urgent need to study this disease, and increase research funding. Llewellyn King, the executive producer and a columnist for White House Chronicle who has been writing about ME/CFS for nine years, recently wrote an article pointing out that Advocacy Day will coincide with #MEAction’s “Millions Missing” protests on May 12. King commented on the Advocacy Day event, saying that “it already has signed up nearly 100 patients, caregivers and activists to call on members of Congress, asking for recognition and explaining that they suffer from a disease that has been described as hidden in plain sight.”
