Alison Hunter Memorial Foundation

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The Alison Hunter Memorial Foundation (AHMF) was established in 1998 to with the mission "to reduce the impact in the community of the disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome." The non-profit charity merged in 2014 with the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (N.C.N.E.D.) at Griffith University, Queensland, and thus no longer operates as an independent no-profit charity. Its name honors Alison Hunter, a teen who died following complications from a severe case of myalgic encephalomyelitis(ME).[1]
