Bringing It Home For NIDA and Phoenix Rising: Four Hours To Go!

September 19, 2012

In the next five hours NIDA will either win 20K or 10K

We  can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve given Phoenix Rising.  In one day we’ve rocketed up to 136th from 179th  - a rise we suspect is rather unprecedented :) :) . We’re tremendously honored by your support.

The big concern now is keeping the Neuro Immune Disease Alliance (NIDA) in the $20,000 category.  NIDA needs to be in the top 96 to win $20,000 and right now with they’re at 87th and things could go either way in what is easily the busiest day of the contest.

NIDA is the brainchild of two parents, Linda and Don Tannenbaum, whose daughter fell suddenly ill with ME/CFS when she was sixteen. Formed in 2011 NIDA first supported Dr. Peterson’s Simmaron Foundation and is now leading the charge for the Open Medicine Foundation’s OMI-MERIT Initiative.

NIDA is working with the OMI-MERIT group to take ME/CFS research to the next level

OMI-MERIT refers to a strategic platform of  projects created by a global consortium of renowned researchers and clinicians that is designed to push ME/CFS research to the next level. (It includes a Rituxan/Rituximab clinical trial).

That’s the kind of work NIDA and Linda and Don Tanenbaum are up to…
