We support patients and families

living with ME and FM

Our society works to help ME and FM patients in British Columbia improve their health and quality of life by providing information about these illnesses, and guidance on how to seek and obtain support, appropriate medical help and treatments. We also focus on informing health care professionals, educators and students about ME and FM, as well as raising awareness among, and seeking the support of, government and the general public.

Jennifer Brea is about to marry the love of her life when she’s struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her “it’s all in her head,” she turns her camera on herself and her community as she looks for answers and fights for a cure.

"riveting......equal parts medical mystery, science lesson, political advocacy primer and even a love story."

                         The San Francisco Chronicle

   Jennifer Brea's award winning feature documentary

"Unrest" available on

Also available on iTunes, Vimeo and Google Play

What happens when you have a disease doctor's can't diagnose​

Jennifer Brea is a US-based speaker, activist and co-founder of #MEACTION and Sundance award-winning filmmaker of "UNREST". She also has ME. 

"In this poignant talk, Brea describes the obstacles she's encountered in seeking treatment for her condition, whose root causes and physical effects we don't fully understand, as well as her mission to document through film the lives of patients that medicine struggles to treat." [YouTube]
