One of our co-owners was diagnosed this November with Fibromyalgia, with 2% of the adult population in the US (roughly 4 million people) are affected with this disorder.
In honour of their journey and strength this year RRLAT will be supporting The Open Medicine Foundation.
The Open Medicine Foundation is a US based foundation (with international branches in Canada, and Australia) that focuses on research and finding ways to improve the diagnosis of chronic complex diseases and disorders such as: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS), PTLDS  /  chronic  / persistent Lyme disease, Long COVID, and Fibromyalgia.
With research headed by a lead researcher in ME/CFS at Stanford University with doctors from Caltech, Harvard, and other prestigious universities around the world The Open Medicine Foundation was founded by a lone mother who's daughter was stricken with ME/CFS to try and fund-raise and facilitate large-scale research in search of diagnostic tools, treatments, and ultimately prevention for ME / CFS and related chronic complex diseases.
