Millions Missing Canada Fundraising

Version française ci-dessous

Since May 2017, the last time we asked for donations to cover our costs, the volunteers at Millions Missing Canada have invested many, many, maaaany hours of time and energy making ME relevant to our policy decision makers -- like meeting with CIHR reps and Scientific Director of IMHA, Dr Karim Khan to talk about how to increase research funding to equitable amounts. Or meetings to bring Ampligen to Canada. In addition to volunteering our time / energy to our collective cause, there have also been expenses we have covered.

Please donate to cover our out of pocket costs for important advocacy activities, like:

- website, long distance calls, and non-profit incorporation expenses
- travel and accommodation to and fro Ottawa for meetings with Ministry of Health staff
- promotion fees for Facebook and Change.org
- external hard drive (for documentary footage), Freedom of Information request fees

Thank you for supporting Millions Missing Canada's ME advocacy work to stop the harm, fund the research, and start the treatment.

Depuis la dernière fois où nous avons sollicité des dons pour couvrir nos frais, en mai 2017, les bénévoles de Millions Missing Canada ont investi de très nombreuses heures et dépensé une tonne d'énergie pour rendre l'EM visible à nos décideurs politiques.  Que ce soit en visitant les représentants des IRSC et le directeur scientifique de l'IALA, le Dr Karim Khan, pour discuter d'une manière d'augmenter le financement pour la recherche à un niveau équitable,  ou encore en travaillant à rendre l'Ampligen accessible au Canada, ce temps et cette énergie consacrés à notre cause nous a occasionné des dépenses. 

Merci de donner généreusement pour couvrir les dépenses liées à d'importantes activités de sensibilisation que nous avons dû payer de notre poche :

– création du site web, appels interurbains et incorporation comme organisation à but non-lucratif
- déplacement aller-retour et hébergement lors de la rencontre avec les collaborateurs de la ministre de la Santé
– promotion sur Facebook et Change.org
– disque dur externe (pour filmer notre documentaire) et demandes d'information en vertu de la loi sur l'accès à l'information

Merci de soutenir Millions Missing Canada et son travail visant à stopper l'injustice, financer la rechercher et soigner les malades.

Canada is woefully behind other developed nations in their commitment to ME research, and resources for patients and physicians.

I was diagnosed with this horrible condition in June 2018, however, I suffered for many years prior to the diagnosis. I have had to travel to the US in order to see an actual specialist (out of pocket). I've had to fight for long-term disability, despite paying into company coverage for the last 25 years and I've just been denied CPP-D. I am donating because I can't thank Millions Missing (each of you) enough for fighting on our behalf. You are appreciated beyond words.

I am waiting for my WCH appt in August of this year. My son has also been diagnosed with ME as well as Fibromyalgia. There is no help in Canada, apart from peer support groups.
