News about the Fibromyalgia Conference

If you are new, or haven’t heard, we are having our 5th conference in Hollywood, Florida on April 24-27, 2008. It is at the Ramada Hollywood Beach Resort. This hotel is gorgeous, right on the beach, with many shops, restaurants, and boardwalk to walk on. The hotel has a block of rooms reserved for the Fibrohugs conference.

The hotel is full other than our rooms. If you call and try to make reservations, be sure to mention it is for the Fibrohugs conference. If you have problems, Melody Dixon at the hotel is the contact person to call. They are holding these rooms until first part of March. If you are considering going, you WILL want to go ahead and reserve your room. Here is the information on the hotel: These conferences are awesome, and not something you want to miss. We meet people that have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, and other illnesses. We learn, we laugh together, talk many hours, and sometimes cry together. It is a time to meet people that can relate with the same problems you have, and also teach others about what has worked for you.

We just got notification that one of the leading Rheumatologists in the area and his wife are going to speak to us. His wife is a RN and a counselor. She also has fibro. He treats and has helped many people with fibromyalgia. We are so excited that he is meeting with us. Be prepared to ask questions. He is going to take time out to answer questions from us. What an awesome time to learn. We also have an awesome massage therapist coming. She treats many people with fibro, and I have personally had a massage from her, and I have never felt so good. We have doctors / therapists writing to see if they can speak at this conference. We are interested in some, and are checking each of them out.

A person that deals with vitamins and supplements also is speaking to us. Many of us want to get away from the medications ~ maybe this is something that you might be interested in looking into. We have so many things planned and so many surprises! If you are a person that would like to sell items at the conference, please contact us. We have 9 tables available to rent out. If you make items, etc, what better place to have a display of them. This week-end we are having a conference, there is also a large craft fair on the beach in front of the hotel. The cost for a table for the whole week-end is only $50. If you are interested in reserving one of the tables, please e-mail us at and we will contact you right away. When you contact us, please let us know what you are planning to sell there. The cost again for the conference is $120 / person which includes a couple of meals and snacks. We are only able to accommodate so many, so Registration is on a first come first serve basis.

About FMS Global News

Folllowing Rick Usher's death in December 2008, at his request in September of that year, I had agreed, as his principal contributor and an experienced journalist, to run the FMS Global News service due to his heavy commitments to music and raising research funds through this avenue. Following his sad and sudden death I hope to continue his work as he would have wished.
