As some of you know, I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS). I’m excited to share that Open Medicine Foundation Canada (OMFCA) is kicking off its annual #TripleGivingTuesday campaign today! Thanks to generous matching donors, every dollar you donate to OMFCA any day of the week will be triple matched now through International Giving Tuesday on November 30, 2021!
Why is this important? ME / CFS is a devastating, life-altering, multi-system disease affecting up to 2.5 million Americans (or 20 million people worldwide), and many more may become afflicted in the aftermath of COVID-19.
While its impact is widespread and devastating, relatively little is known about the disease, and there are no treatments. Patients are left to deal with the illness with little help from the medical establishment, in many cases for decades.
Fortunately, OMFCA is working to change the research landscape. Open Medicine Foundation is a US-based global nonprofit, with an affiliate organization in Canada (OMF Canada). With a 19-member Scientific Advisory Board that includes two Nobel laureates and six National Academy of Sciences members, OMF & OMFCA have facilitated and funded the establishment of five research centers across the globe. Each center is dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and ultimately preventing these related chronic, complex diseases.
OMFCA is leading the research and making real headway. There is now a committed community of world-renowned scientists, doctors, and patients raising awareness and making great strides in finding treatments that bring ME / CFS patients some relief and hope for a normal life in the future.
When you donate, you help to accelerate this critical research, giving hope to millions.

I’m excited to share that Open Medicine Foundation Canada (OMFCA) is kicking off their annual #TripleGivingTuesdayOMF campaign today! Thanks to generous matching donors, every dollar you donate to OMF any day of the week will be triple matched now through International Giving Tuesday on November 30, 2021!
Why is this important? ME /CFS is a devastating multi-system disease affecting up to 20 million people worldwide, and many more may become afflicted in the aftermath of COVID-19.
While its impact is widespread, relatively little is known about the disease, and no FDA-approved treatments exist. Patients are left to deal with the illness with little help from the medical establishment, in many cases for decades.
Fortunately, OMFCA is working to change the research landscape. They have facilitated and funded the establishment of six research centers across the globe dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and ultimately preventing chronic, complex diseases. There’s no better time to donate and accelerate OMF’s work than Triple Giving Tuesday.
Please join me by donating today! You can visit omfca.ngo to make a donation or create your own fundraiser. Thank you for your support! Together, we can end ME/CFS.”

Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
