Barb brand jacobsen (1952-2015)

tribute to barb…

Barb was the best person I ever met.

She died from ME.

The first time I met her she put out her hand and said, “I am Barb Brand and I have chronic fatigue.”

She didn't want people to be disappointed that she couldn't do everything that she wanted to do. 

Chronic fatigue is now called M.E. which stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

They still don't understand what causes the disease and why it affects women at higher rate than men.

What ME sufferers want more than anything else is understanding and research for a cure. #TimeForUnrest
