Subject line: Please support my fundraiser for ME/CFS, FM, post-viral illness

[INSERT YOUR GREETING]  

I’m raising money for the Bateman Horne Center (BHC), a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of those with ME/CFS, fibromyalgia (FM), and other post-viral illnesses such as Long COVID.

This organization is important to me because [INSERT YOUR OWN STATEMENT HERE].  

There are three critical gaps in the world of ME/CFS, FM, and post-viral illness:

  1. Medical care options are very limited.
  2. Research on diagnosing and treatment remains underfunded and slow.
  3. Medical professionals lack specialized education, tools, and institutional support.

Here is a snapshot of what BHC will utilize donations for:

  • Identifying biological markers of ME/CFS, FM, and Long COVID to increase the speed and accuracy of diagnosis and effective treatment.
  • Studying new tests and treatments to improve the lives of those with ME/CFS, FM, and post-viral illness.
  • Hiring an additional physician to increase patient treatment capacity.
  • Closing the gap in medical care by providing education to healthcare professionals on effective diagnosis and treatment options.
  • Sustaining monthly support groups for patients and their care partners.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Bateman Horne Center this year. Every contribution matters, and your donation will support our goal of raising $50,000.

If you are unable to donate at this time please consider sharing this with your family and friends.

Thank you,

[YOUR NAME]
