Two weeks ago, Ace posted about how his health had taken a turn for the worse. Brian then gave "the go-ahead to set up this fund for the Solve ME/CFS Initiative. I’m hoping we can raise $5,000, in honor of my parents, to support CFS research and push for a cure."
In five days it raised over $30,000 and it is now at $35,372.
For those interested in learning more about ME/CFS, I thought I'd post information on the movie Unrest (2017), which is now on Netflix.
It is a good way to learn a bit about what Ace and others with CFS are going through.
The documenary received solid reviews (8.3 on IMDb)
Short summary from the film's website: "Jennifer Brea is about to marry the love of her life when she’s struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her 'it’s all in her head,' she turns her camera on herself and her community as she looks for answers and fights for a cure."
Here is a summary from Rotten Tomatoes:
"Journalist Jennifer Brea documents her struggle with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After spiking a 105 degree fever shortly after being accepted to a PhD program at Harvard, Brea manifested a mysterious cluster of symptoms, including extreme weakness, fatigue, full-body pain and mental confusion. After being dismissed by doctors, she discovered a community of patients similarly struggling with the mysterious disorder after making videos from her bed about her situation and posting them online. The documentary includes interviews with Brea, as well as her Skype interviews with other isolated patients who are similarly bedridden and struggling to make sense of how their lives have permanently changed."
(The film's website has multiple ways to view the movie by the way, which is, again, just a good film and you may find it to be a film worth watching.)
