The Rescued and the Rescuers

On Friday September 10th, the Whittemore Peterson Institute had their 6th annual fundraiser in Reno, Nevada. A three part video was presented at this event, profiling the rescued and the rescuers. The video examines several XMRV-associated illnesses. This set of videos was conceived by the WPI and filmed and edited by Peter Cairns. The music is by the Polish composer Maciej Zurawski, who lives in Edinburgh and who has recovered from ME/CFS.


  1. Thank you so much for showing these videos, Patient Advocate. Watching them has lifted my spirits, just as reading your articles usually does--and when it doesn't lift my spirits, it is at least educating me.

  2. Thank you for sharing. These videos were very well done, and I'm sure helped to stimulate fundraising. Hopefully, many people will continue to be inspired by them to donate generously.

    And I'm grateful for your observations, also. Sharing them publicly is a great service to this community. Thank you.

  3. Thank you Chris.

    Yourself and the WPI are the truth that can be increasingly heard above the decades of shouts of the psychiatric lie over ME/CFS.

  4. These are lovely. "When we throw coins in a fountain we know what we wish" just slayed me.
