I am signing this petition because I am the carer for my wife who suffers from severe ME. For two years I have been active in raising funds for the WPI and in particular Dr Judy Mikovits whose pioneering research has given hope, not only to us but to many hundreds of thousands of fellow ME sufferers. I believe that Dr Mikovits is driven mainly by her genuine desire to help all of us whose lives are being destroyed by this dreadful neurological illness and she is a beacon of hope for all of us.
It is not only morally wrong it undermines the fundamentals of the democratic process and the basic rights of the individual to persecuted in such a way because the answers they seek question the foundations of the 'Status Quo'....
17million + of us suffering neuroendocrine and immune disease are desperate for answers that will help us get our lives back. Dr Judy was focused solely on trying to find those answers for us. She has done nothing wrong, this has turned into a witch hunt against her, it would be farcical if it wasn't so serious. Please do right by Dr Judy and all of us who support (and rely upon) her work
I held out for as long as I could, hoping the WPI would redeem itself, but the news of Dr. Mikovits' arrest is the last straw. WPI, there is still time for you to drop charges but you will have to do a lot to make amends to Dr. Mikovits and the patient community.
Dr Judy Mikovits had performed amazing work on ME research, I as an individual have donated money & encouraged others to do so to WPI for HER work, Together with helping with voting for fundraisers such as Vivint,Chase and NIH. These funds should go with her for her research as should donators money, IMO WPI have obtained money by deception by showing us the work Dr Mikovits is doing then firing her. This is about our lives. Let her take all what belongs to her and stop trying to destroy her reputation.
