Scott Simpson

Scott Simpson is a Canadian patient living well with HIV since 1998 but "suffering a lot with Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) since August 9, 2012."[1] Scott is on the core team of Millions Missing Canada.

Scott is a medal-winning triathlete who is a three-time member of the national triathlon team in his age group. But now, on good days, he can walk for 10 minutes on flat ground. He says he can accept his ME diagnosis with its bleak prognosis, but not the harms the Canadian health care system perpetuates on its citizens suffering with ME. He has experienced the very best research and treatment of HIV to non-existent research funding and either no or harmful treatments with ME.[1]
