the connecticut cfids & fm association joins forces with
community health charities of connecticut

we are proud to announce that the connecticut cfids & fm association has been accepted by community health charities of connecticut as an associate member. community health charities of connecticut is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds through workplace giving campaigns for local chapters of national health agencies. these health agencies offer vital resources and services including education, treatment, outreach and research in communities throughout connecticut.

"all funding we receive helps us to better serve you. more funding will assist in our continuing efforts to educate doctors by allowing us to provide an educational program in the state specifically geared toward health care professionals. we also would be able to provide more conferences, better services for our patients, and donate more to promising research projects. money is always an issue, but with your assistance we can do more. so, get the word out to your friends and family about community health charities of connecticut."

employees from companies throughout the state, as well as federal and ct state employees will now have the option to designate their workplace donations to the connecticut cfids & fm association and help in the fight for research and better doctor education within connecticut for chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

“we are proud to add the connecticut cfids & fm association to our federation,” says kevin canavan, president of community health charities of connecticut. “we know that our fundraising efforts are critical. the statistics speak for themselves: a study conducted by researchers at depaul university estimates cfs at approximately 422 per 100,000 persons in the u.s. this means as many as 12,660 people statewide suffer from this illness. 90% of patients have not been diagnosed and are not receiving proper medical care for their illness. not only do we strive to raise awareness, we look forward to giving employees of companies throughout connecticut additional choices of where they can donate their money.”
