You are the Motivation behind our Momentum

The challenges are real, and the momentum continues

Because YOU are on our team

Chronic diseases rob people of their ability to lead full and energetic lives. May Momentum is an annual effort by OMF to fundraise for research and raise awareness of ME/CFS, now Long COVID, and related multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD).

Your support during May helps us build momentum. Together, we can improve medical education and fast-track research that will lead to better diagnostics, treatments, and ultimately – a cure.

Donate Now

Donations of any amount ensure that the research momentum to end ME/CFS and related multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD) can continue with urgency.
