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.

Severe M.E. patient from the Netherlands Ingeborg Geuijen has sadly passed away this month. Ingeborg was one of the very first people with M.E. I (Jodi Bassett) ever met and a huge inspiration for all the M.E. education and advocacy work I have done since then on HFME. Ingeborg was one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and also one of the most horribly, horrifically ill. She will be sadly missed. An HFME tribute page to Inge is in the works but is not yet completed.


The HFME team continues to be as committed as ever to M.E. advocacy work and M.E. education. However, we are currently taking a (much needed!) break from writing new pieces to put up on our website.

The HFME website currently contains papers and webpages on many different topics related to M.E. and we hope you will continue to access them and to share them widely. This information needs to become far more widely known. Thank you for helping us in our mission to get the facts out there. Best wishes everyone!
