We know that the holidays can be a challenging time. Many of you head into this busy holiday season with a mix of anticipation and fear, excitement and dread. There is so much to be done, but you don’t want to throw yourself into a severe crash. You need to pace yourself and conserve as much energy as possible.
It has been said that one can’t help another without helping themselves… One small way that we might help each other this year is through our Shop to Support program. This new feature on our website offers you an opportunity to take care of all of your holiday shopping through one simple portal while supporting the work of the Bateman Horne Center at the same time.
When you choose to make a purchase from any of the more than 100 merchants found at the link HERE, you support ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia education, research and improved clinical care at the same time! While the percentages are small, every penny adds up and can be a part of making a very real difference. That may be one of the greatest gifts of all.
BHC is working to develop standardized diagnostic tests and evidence-based treatments to improve the lives of millions of sufferers. While this research is developing, patients need access to qualified care now. With your support, we can increase clinic staff patient capacity, expand programs that train up-and-coming medical providers, and increase education opportunities for the medical community in order to bring about greater understanding and diagnosis. Patients and their loved ones need hope now. Hope comes from education and understanding, from expanded knowledge, from connection and conversation. This is what the BHC patient education programs provide; bringing patients together and empowering them with quality information that helps them live better lives today.
