By Rachel Black in The Batema Horne Center.
Bateman Horne Center is guided by a board of directors that is intimately connected to ME/CFS and FM. Many have sons, daughters or are themselves managing an illness that has taken much of their life away.
Most of you know that our organization is named after Dr. Bateman, but many don’t realize it is also named after her sister Shauna Horne. Shauna suffered from ME/CFS and later died of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Shauna was a delightful person, mother to four, enjoyed her family, hobbies and a part time job.
This mission is personal for all of us at Bateman Horne Center.
Since its inception, Bateman Horne Center has been working to support those impacted by ME/CFS and FM by providing educational resources that can impact today’s quality of life for patients everywhere.We are simultaneously driving innovative research and bringing ME/CFS and fibromyalgia into mainstream medical education.
