Amazon Wishlist

One of the biggest expenses I have with running M.E. Support is the cost of office supplies. I created an Amazon Wishlist so that you have the choice of supporting this cause with tangible items as an alternative to making a monetary donation.

Please consider purchasing an item from the list and Amazon will dispatch it to M.E. Support on your behalf. I currently require the following items and would appreciate any help you can provide:

 
 
 

Hire Me

Through my experiences as an M.E. sufferer and webmaster, I have expanded my knowledge of health related issues, along with gaining skills in multimedia management.

I am currently available to Hire for the following projects:

  • Reviews and sponsored posts related to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for M.E. Support.

He has just launched his latest book, My Long Journey To Sincerity: Elana Mayne, which is now available on Amazon. The story follows sixteen year old Elana who overhears a secret conversation and witnesses a terrible crime.

Jason has followed my work here at M.E. Support with great interest over the years. He has kindly offered to donate a percentage of the royalties for each copy sold to this important cause.
