Campaign for a Fair Name

Friday 1 February 2008

Campaign for a Fair NameCampaign for a Fair Name has launched a new website:

aFairName.org (external link)

Rich Carson, the website’s creator, is attempting to effect a worldwide change of name from “CFS” to “ME/CFS”, and is asking people to help:

Campaign for a Fair Name announced the launch this week of its website, aFairName.org. The campaign is the grassroots patient and physician effort to change ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ to the acronym ME/CFS. ‘ME’ is considered by most physicians and patients to be historically and diagnostically correct, and it has been used worldwide to describe the disease for close to 50 years.

The Campaign’s website presents the history of the name change effort, along with the rationale for the selection of ‘ME/CFS’. The website also offers additional information and resources, including:

• A petition to support the name change
• Campaign activities and our cause
• Message Board exchanges
• Name Change Advisory Board members
• Fair Name Implementation Committee (FNIC) members
• The upcoming name change ratification Vote and how you can help make a difference.

This effort could die without your support and participation. I am calling on you, your friends and family members, and healthcare providers, to help us make the name change a reality. Sign the name change petition, join the conversation on the Message Board, help us spread the word. The demeaning label ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ is about to disappear forever. But now it is up to you.

Please do your part.

Yours with passionate determination,

Rich Carson
Patient Advocate
