MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here
click to Read more/less

survey for ANYONE who identifies with METABOLIC MALODOR

begun : Oct20
end : no ending for now

Regular readers will know that Dr Stan Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic are developing a TMA-blocker pill, as they proposed in a 2011 paper that TMAO is a factor in CVD. Recently Dr Hazen and colleagues contacted MEBO as they have always thought they could also help with TMAU. This survey is to give them an idea of the 'state of the community'. It is a "version 1". They may not even look (though they have access permission), but it could be useful to give them an overview of the community

MEBO had a zoom call with Dr Hazen and his team in October. Another zoom call is planned when they have time

This is a GOOGLE FORMS survey

current participants : 113 (update 18dec20)

Our beloved friend and pioneer TMAU campaigner Cheryl Fields passed away on June 10

Cheryl Fields / DrStillStanding 
It is with great sadness we hear that MEBO Community Outreach Director Cheryl Fields passed away on June 10. She was a much beloved member of the TMAU community, probably the biggest campaigner and pioneer of TMAU awareness, and our greatest counselor, giving her phone number online for many years to support all in need.

Her role as a pioneer of TMAU awareness cannot be underestimated. 10-15 years ago when those with metabolic malodor were internet nomads ending up on the few 'normal' body odor/halitosis forums there were, she was giving out her name, address and phone number. At that time perhaps only Cheryl and Arun were known names to the online community. Every post was done in an uplifting selfless manner. She attended any TMAU awareness campaigns she could, including the MEBO meetups and a visit to Washington, as well as appearing on TV and newspapers.

She is now at peace with her beloved daughter.

In this 2012 MEBO video funded by the community, we see her as she always was, supporting the community and  educating all about TMAU. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

A quote from Cheryl's last Facebook post

 Keep your heads up and remember there is no other option than to be POSITIVE, UPBEAT, & FAITHFUL! smile emoticon

Oh my gosh, I am so sad to hear this. She definitely was a big force in those early days. I remember talking to her through email many times.
She was always so positive and uplifting.

She will be missed.

It's really sad to hear that Cheryl is no longer with us. She was very active in the TMAU yahoo groups, she was very supportive of other fellow sufferer by giving her phone number and email, I'm sure she helped a lot of people, may God bless her soul.

Cheryl was an exceptional person. She helped me so much when I first realized that I might have TMAU. I know she was there for many people with this disorder. I am very thankful to have known such a wonderful person. She lifted my spirits many times. She will be greatly missed. RIP Cheryl.

I remember her from when I used to be on the online messageboards 10-12 years ago. I always wondered where she got all her strength from, such an inspiration. My condolences goes out to her family and friends.
