May Awareness

May is awareness month for the related complex immunologic and neurologic diseases (CIND):  

ME, CFS, Lyme, GWI, FM and MCS. 

May 12 is the specific date chosen to raise awareness for these diseases, because it’s Florence Nightingale’s birthday. After her groundbreaking work in nursing, Nightingale became bedridden for decades from a mysterious disease similar to ME. 

This year, May12.org has developed an easy way to spread awareness across social media with a May awareness overlay for your Facebook, Twitter or other social media profile photo.

Disease Choices

You have a choice of 8 graphics:

  • Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
  • ME & CFS
  • Lyme Disease
  • Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
  • Chronic Lyme Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gulf War Illness
  • Act Up 4 ME
