OMF’s Triple Giving Tuesday is a Success

thankyou1OMF’s Triple Giving Tuesday brought together a record number of donors for a ground-breaking success. Our Triple Giving Tuesday campaign has raised over $240,000! More than 500 donors participated in this important call to action.

Thanks to Dr. Deborah Rose, friends and supporters like you, OMF can strive to make lives better for people with ME / CFS and their families. The funds we raised will expand OMF’s revolutionary research — identifying effective treatments, establishing biomarkers and ultimately, prevention.

Our community truly rallied to this call. We are so grateful to each and every person who donated. Please know that whether your gift was $3 or $10,000 or more, you are helping to fast-track research to find answers.

Thank you for standing with us creating the biggest single giving event we have ever had.
