Video Preview

Presented by Bergen ME/CFS/FM Support Group and NJME/CFSA.Additional Information – 8/30/2017

UNREST describes the physical and emotional journey of one woman’s experience with a debilitating illness. Jen Brea, a Harvard Graduate, documents her struggle to find a diagnosis, her discovery of ME/CFS and chronicles the story of people around the world who also live with this illness. This movie illustrates the lack of knowledge and treatment options by our medical professionals for  ME/CFS patients. Through perseverance and the support of her family, Jen Brea documents her struggle for a better life. Her goal is to take the discussion of ME/CFS beyond the darkened bedrooms  of patients and to share this movie across the country and around the  world. Jen hopes to raise awareness,  increase research,  to achieve validation of MECFS and ultimately to find a cure .
