Simon Del Favero is an Australian citizen who developed myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) after a severe bout of glandular fever in 2011.[1] He was also diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) in 2014. Before becoming ill, Del Favero had studied architecture at the University of Sydney and was working part-time as an architectural model maker.[2]

Del Favero travels to the US to see Dr. Hector Bonilla for the management of his ME. In 2017, he met Prof. Ron Davis, the leader of the Open Medicine Foundation's End ME/CFS Project. His experiences with ME are featured as part of Emerge Australia's Member Stories campaign.[3]
