Mary M. Schweitzer, PhD, is an advocate who has been living with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) since 1994.[1] She stated in a written testimony to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC): "I first collapsed with 'chronic fatigue syndrome' on October 24, 1994 (although I probably already had it when an outbreak of Epstein-Barr swept Villanova, where I was a professor, in the fall of 1990)".[2]

She has been receiving Ampligen since 1999. After a period where she stopped Ampligen, she had a severe relapse, making her committed to never voluntarily going off Ampligen again.[3][4] Currently she is in the Ampligen trial with Dr. Daniel Peterson in Incline Village.
