Our Story

The OMF Difference

In 2006, OMF Founder & CEO Linda Tannenbaum’s 16-year-old daughter went from being a healthy teenager to severely ill overnight. She could not get out of bed, and all her energy had been drained. Her daughter had sudden onset ME/CFS. After visiting over 20 doctors, Linda quickly realized there was a huge gap in research – no treatments, diagnostics, or cure for ME/CFS exists.

In 2012, Linda set out to change this. She established OMF as a nonprofit organization with a mission to fundraise and facilitate large-scale research in search of diagnostic tools, treatments, and ultimately a cure. OMF’s board members, staff and volunteers that include patients and caregivers inspire, advise, and dedicate their time to this mission.

By 2014, Linda and renowned geneticist Ronald W. Davis, PhD, also a parent of a severely ill son, joined forces. Together they built OMF’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of leading experts dedicated to our mission.

OMF has since raised more than $45 million and leads the largest worldwide nonprofit effort to end ME/CFS and Long Covid. United by passion and scientific curiosity, our OMF Collaborative Research Network will not give up until answers are found. Your support ensures their success.
