BC Place will glow blue and purple Monday, May 12th, in support of International ME/CFS & FM Awareness Day, and as part of the “May 12th Light Up the Night Challenge”. The event is supported by both the National ME/FM Action Network and the MEFM Society of BC to bring awareness to the experience and needs of people living with ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and FM (Fibromyalgia).

Close to 100,000 British Columbians are living with these disabling and often misunderstood diseases. If you would like more information about ME/CFS or FM, please contact the National ME/FM Action Network (www.mefmaction.com) or the MEFM Society of BC (www.mefm.bc.ca).
