A certified 501 (c) 3 non-profit, Phoenix Rising provides people with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) information to support their health and wellness and online programs to enhance their health and well-being. Phoenix Rising publishes articles, a blog and a newsletter, maintains the largest ME/CFS Forum (forums.phoenixrising.me) and contains the largest database of articles and posts on ME/CFS on the web. We’re currently engaged in several online projects to designed to enhance patients treatment and physician options, reduce their isolation and empower the ME/CFS community.
In many ancient cultures the Phoenix bird is a potent symbol of rebirth that is periodically reborn from the ashes of its own destruction. This website and now non-profit organization, created by a chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) patient, was born out of the hope that ME/CFS patients, too, will someday rise from the ashes of their often shattered lives and that the disease itself will emerge from the ash heap of recognition it now receives into the light of serious and sustained scientific endeavor.
