(December 2014)
Due to the celebration of the IronMan sporting event in Barcelona, a group of young athletes, some of them children of affected persons, they proposed a dual challenge: to end the event and also to publicize these "invisible"diseases that currently affects between 2% and 6% of the population and for which there is no current effective treatment. The analogy is simple but effective: Imagine how you feel the day after running a marathon; This is the daily struggle of a patient of Fibromyalgia / CFS to go to work, go get the kids to school or just to get out of bed.
