How we operate: Some meetings are lecture meetings by a medical professional(s), qualified contributing speaker or video presentation with a question and answer period to follow. Other meetings are discussion and support forums providing a friendly environment where participants offer support, provide coping skills and offer insights into living with chronic illness. Anyone interested in meeting information and CFS/FMS community news can sign up for our e-news link.

We encourage annual donation of $20 on a voluntary basis and appreciate support from our donors.

We welcome donations (which are tax-deductible as allowed by law for other charities) to fund group activities, seminars and research as adopted by the board of directors.

Please Note: Many of our members have allergies and chemical sensitivities. Therefore, National Jewish Center does not allow smoking or fragrances such as perfumes, colognes, after-shave lotions, or any other scented products. Please do not wear any scented products.

The Rocky Mountain CFIDS/FMS Association is an educational resource for patients, medical professionals and those affected by these diseases.

Disclaimer:  The Association does not dispense medical advice nor recommend or endorse any practice, product, service, test, treatment, or medical hypothesis, and assumes no responsibility for actions undertaken by members or visitors. For medical advice, please consult your doctor.

The following are general notes regarding RMCFA:

  • General Notes about events are found at the end of the Event Data page.
  • If away from a computer, information about our next upcoming event is available at our information and message line.  Call 303-4-CFS-FMS (303-423-7367).
  • We function as an independent organization, avoiding entanglements with commercial interests.
    • However, as we facilitate exchange of unbiased educational information,
    • we provide opportunity for local medical professionals to become known to our participants.
  • While we hope you will let us get to know you as you get to know us, neither "Membership" nor eMail signup are required to make use of our services.
  • We operate as a charity, offering services free of charge.
    • Yet for those able to help, we depend on donations to continue to provide services.
    • Donations are tax deductible as for other charities (under our underlying legal name, Rocky Mountain CFS Association, Inc., used before we expanded to include Fibromyalgia in 2000).
  • Volunteer service is the driving force behind RMCFA.  If you are able to help, we hope you will interact with us by whatever means are available, and find a place of involvement suited to your talents and interest.
  • Thanks for "checking us out"!

 

FYI, about our Name and History:

  • The Rocky Mountain CFS Association began meeting along about 1986, as a chronic fatigue syndrome group.
  • RMCFA was incorporated in August 1991 under our still underlying "true name," Rocky Mountain CFS Association, Inc., which you can find registered with the IRS at this link.
  • In March 2000 we expanded to include fIbromyalgia, and assumed the trade name Rocky Mountain CFIDS/FMS Association (RMCFA), a name which continues to be valid and which you may sometimes still see.
  • In November 2010, in accord with the widespread change of the name "CFS" to include the alternate name "ME" (myalgic encephalomyelitis), we updated to the new trade name Rocky Mountian CFS/ME & FM Association.
