Health Rising has had a good year. Traffic has almost doubled and our subscriptions have more than doubled. We’ve published almost 400 blogs since Health Rising started in December 2012. Just in the past month or so some of the blogs we’ve published include
- Fatigue Explained? Japanese Assert Brain Damage Causes Fatigue in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- The ‘Insulted Midbrain’ in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Unnerving Findings: Studies Opening New Directions for Fibromyalgia
- Biomarker for Fatigue Could Help Validate Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- High Muscle Acid Accumulations in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome May Be Reversible
- System Reset: New Way To Reduce Fight or Flight Response Found
You can’t get this kind of information anywhere else on the internet. Nobody provides the kind of information, week in and week out, that we do.
Recurring Donation Drive
We’re asking you to support that information flow with a $5 (or $10 or more?) a month recurring donation. You’ll hardly notice it – a little blip in your budget – but your donation can produce miracles for Health Rising. One hundred people out of the thousands that visit Health Rising every day giving $5 a month would bring $500/month more for us. That’s pretty darn big money for us.
Think about this. We’ll be at 5,000 subscribers soon. A thousand people giving just $5/month would bring in $5,000/month. Our budget would quintuple, Health Rising would be self-supporting and you would very quickly have a slew of website programs that would help you find better treatments faster, hook up with people in your local community, find good doctors, etc.
It’s all about the numbers.
Please participate. You’ll hardly notice it but Health Rising will….

We expected several projects (Forums, Community Rising, Physician Review, Lives Interrupted, new website) would be done by now but they had to put off. Several are expected to be done soon. They, too, are part of this fundraising drive.

After years of work it’s time to attempt what we’ve never been able to do before – get Congress to force the NIH to double its funding for ME/CFS. Support the historic bill to increase research funding, add new ME/CFS research centers, require the development of a strategic plan, etc.. It will take less than 5 minutes.
