See ME – Awareness Day Music Video

‘See ME’ is a cover of the song Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. The lyrics have been adjusted to reflect the lives of people suffering from ME/CFS. Many have become bed or housebound and live an isolated life between four walls. This song is to commemorate the millions missing who have disappeared from public life because of ME/CFS.

Created by Belgian artist Robin De Man and his son Seppe.

Using Art to Bring Visibility to ME/CFS

Christina Baltais created some artistic collages for May 12th ME/CFS awareness day.  Lives Capsized – “ME/CFS can strike any age, gender (most commonly affects women), and ethnicity (people of colour more likely to be affected). It can take down even the strongest and most robust in our communities. It’s a disease that does not discriminate; overturning the lives of millions and their families worldwide.”
