Change for ME Australia

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

The Mission statement:

"Change For Me is an online collective dedicated to providing information, support and advocacy for Australians affected by neuro-immune and emerging diseases such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Lyme Disease, multiple chemical sensitivity and Fibromyalgia.

These complex, multi-systemic illnesses cause intense suffering, and approximately one quarter of sufferers are house-bound or bed-ridden, cut off from the outside world, and dependent on others for help with basic tasks such as preparing meals, bathing, and mobility. Yet these very ill Australians currently have very little access to basic support services.

Our vision is to help sufferers of these conditions feel supported, visible, connected and informed.

Please join us and help make a positive change for Australians affected by these illnesses."[1]

About Us:

"Change for Me is an online collective. Amara and Lee met on Facebook in 2010 and over time developed the idea of a small group that could assist fellow neuro-immune disease sufferers in practical ways. In 2012 Ann and Mel came on board to form the core of the Change for Me and with their help the collective was born. Since that time a small number of dedicated helpers have been slowing plugging away to bring our plans to life."[2]
