Cause: Keep MECFS Alert on the air
Llewellyn King and Deborah Waroff’s ongoing series of short informational videos on ME/CFS via YouTube channel, MECFS Alert, is very much a lifeline for the ME/CFS community – many of whom are bedridden.
Creator and co-host Llewellyn King says the aim of ME/CFS Alert is to comfort the suffering, educate the doctors, and to shame the government into allocating further research dollars. There are now more than 50 informative videos on the channel, consisting of interviews with doctors, patients and advocates.
“But to continue to make these videos, I seek your financial assistance. Any amount you wish to contribute will go directly (not a penny toward administrative costs) into making these videos as helpful as possible to everyone afflicted with ME/CFS — a disease which I’ve described as ‘hidden in plain sight’,” said King
“I want ME/CFS Alert to continue to be a place for members of the ME/CFS community to learn about others living with the disease and medical research and treatment options. And I hope it will be a place for the general public to get to know, as I have come to, this valiant community.
“If you know someone with this disease, you’ll know why I’ve given so much of my time and assets to it. I hope you can make a contribution.”
