Miller Family Continues Publicity Drive for ME/CFS Research Funding

The Miller FamilyFamily Wants More Research for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” - Reno MyNews4.com led with this headline on Aug 26, publicizing the need for more ME/CFS research funding.

In this article and the accompanying video, staff writer Alyx Sacks shares her interview with 20-year ME/CFS patient Robert Miller and his crusading advocate wife Courtney Miller. For background, Alyx notes:

• It was Courtney who in a 2011 Town Hall Meeting told President Obama “we spend less than $6 million for NIH research on this illness,” [less than on psoriasis, for example] and asked, “for my husband and my kids, who want their father to be able to go to their baseball games, if there’s a way to make improvements in that.” The President promised he would look into it.

• And it was to Courtney the President directed a letter that indicated to her "he has thrown in on our side." ("President Obama asks NIH & DHHS to elevate priority of chronic fatigue syndrome.")

“Just the fact the President did that was the best thing he could do for my family," Courtney says.
