Four brave faces of M.E./CFS!

Four girls with M.E./CFS decided one day that they were fed up with the social injustice, medical neglect, and lack of awareness and biomedical research funds for M.E./CFS. They met in a support group and began brain storming on ways to make waves of change. The idea of the Chilli M.E. Challenge took off as friendships formed among these four girls. Let this story inspire others, whether ill or healthy, to believe they can make a huge brave change in the world and give people hope and a light!
