Simon Del Favero is an Australian citizen who developed myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) after a severe bout of glandular fever in 2011. He was also diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) in 2014. Before becoming ill, Simon had studied architecture at the University of Sydney and was working part-time as an architectural model maker. He was 21, healthy, and physically very fit prior to developing ME.[1][2]

Simon travels to the US to see Dr. Hector Bonilla for management of his ME. In 2017, he met Prof. Ron Davis, director of Stanford's End ME/CFS Project.[1]
