Welcome to our Millions Missing BC Online Campaigns for ME Health Equality
We've taken our May 12th Victoria event online!
In a time where the chronically ill, the immuno-compromised and the elderly have been on the front line, targeted by a deadly pandemic, the government is now talking of slowly going back to a new normal.
Now is the time for our community to make our voices heard, take to the virtual front steps of the BC Legislature and demand that provincial decision-makers...
...Leave No One Behind!
The Theme: Leave No One Behind
This year’s ME May Awareness Canadian theme, devised by Millions Missing Canada, is “Leave No One Behind”.
In light of Covid-19, we are witnessing a changing world where collective action is being taken in an efficient and swift manner with unprecedented co-operation between various levels and branches of government. The same needs to happen for those living with ME.
From Millions Missing Canada’s campaign mandate:
We’re calling for our policy makers to take action right now to leave no one with ME behind in the very same intolerable setting the rest of the world finds unbearable right now.
Like many other diseases, there is no cure for ME or even an effective treatment approved at this time, but there is much that can be done right now to bring health care equity, alleviate the suffering, and offer needed support that will change the future for 580,000 Canadians living with ME.
We’re calling on our decision makers to meet with advocates and stakeholders to learn more and begin implementing those critical steps that will offer solutions right now!

Launch date: 12 May 2020
End date: When we achieve Health Equality for ME
On May 12 we launched our Millions Missing BC 2020 campaign in honour of International ME Awareness Month. We ended the month with our Online Rally on May 30. Your stories and messages were so strong and moving throughout May, we were encouraged to continue our campaign throughout the year.
We designed our campaigns to enable you to share your personal story and our community's message with your MLA in the format that works best for you. Whether you like to write, post on social media or use video, use our campaign pages to make it easy to reach out to our province's decision-makers, to reel them in to be friends of the ME community and help us #ChangeTheFuture4ME.
