MYALGIC ENCEPHALOPATHY / CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME
From 1 April 2021MS Waikato will no longer provide services for ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Following discussions with the Bay of Plenty organisation Complex Chronic illness Support Inc. (CCI Support) they have welcomed the ME/CFS group into their midst. They have a great model for service, which is a much better fit for supporting those affected by ME/CFS and allied conditions than under the MS umbrella.
Tracey Larson has transferred to CCIS and will continue to be employed in this role providing the support services within the Waikato and Coromandel.
Originally established in 1981 as the Bay of Plenty ME Support Group (renamed CCI Support in May 2018) it is among the longest-serving support organisations in the world for people affected by ME/CFS.
