The ME/CFS community (aka ‘MEEPS’ / Jarmy Army) is amazing. In both words and actions, supporters of our cause demonstrate incredible compassion for fellow sufferers, people more severely impacted than themselves, people who might be isolated by the condition and especially people who are just beginning their journey.
From persuading friends and family to run marathons, to organising sausage sizzles, to knitting or crafting – supporters across Australia find ways to raise critical funds for people affected by ME/CFS in Australia.
