Artist's Description

The Art

Depicting an ill woman with some of the many symptoms of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

The Artist

Jill Thompson is a former systems and software developer who started digital painting as a hobby when she became housebound with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in 2013. She is now mostly confined to bed.

We’d like to thank Jill for sharing her talents with us and creating art to raise funds for ME advocacy in Canada.

The Illness

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a serious, complex neuroimmune illness that affects all systems in the body and robs people of their ability to function and lead normal lives. There are over 580,000 Canadians living with ME in Canada with 75% unable to work and 25% so severely ill, they are confined to their homes or even their beds — missing celebrations and events with their family and friends — truly missing out on their lives.

Millions Missing Canada

Millions Missing Canada is a volunteer non-profit organization advocating for treatment access, appropriate health care and equitable research funding for ME in Canada. Our objectives are to stop the harm, fund the research, and start the treatment.

Thank you for visiting our store. We hope you find something you like for yourself or a gift for someone else, while being a part of the ME solution.
