The Hummingbirds' Foundation for M.E.

The Hummingbirds' Foundation for M.E. (HFME) is fighting for the recognition of M.E.,
and for patients to be accorded the same basic human rights as those with similar
disabling and potentially fatal neurological diseases such as M.S.

A note to ill people: The sign-up page does have one of those HIDEOUS visual code things you have to put in, sorry about that to those that are made ill by them and find them a huge hassle. A password is needed as well. There is no way to turn these things off I am afraid, although you do only need to sign in once. (Unless you want to change the email address your email updates go to at any time.)

If you are too ill to become a member, and don't mind about not having the handy member option to change details yourself later on if needed, please instead just enter your email adress below and click 'submit' and you're done.

The book 'Caring For The M.E. Patient' by Jodi Bassett includes a Foreword by international M.E. expert Dr Byron Hyde.

He writes:

"There is so much false information that is picked up and disseminated it is near impossible to hold one’s head above the water and sift through this morass of misinformation. Any attempt to seek the truth is always a major difficulty. Somehow, Jodi Bassett and Hummingbird have managed to plow through this field of weeds."

"This is a book that deserves being read, not only by patients and physicians with an interest in M.E. but the bureaucrats in the USA Centers for Disease Control who have done so much damage to the understanding of M.E. I recommend her book to all and wish it every best success."
