Please stop by and give a thumbs up for these two nominations of Dr. Mikovits. Wildaisy
I also nominate Dr. Judy Mikovits for Woman of the Year. I have been sick with a chronic illness, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, for 25 years, and the research she has done has given me hope when I had lost all hope. She is an extraordinary woman as well as being an excellent, accomplished scientist, and she has saved many lives through her research, by giving us hope. Granada Massage I nominate Dr. Judy Mikovits who has given her all to finding the cause of myalgic encephalomyelitis, erroneously known as chronic fatigue SYNDROME. With 6 million sufferers in the US alone, and only $6 million allocated to research on it, patients with the disease have been ignored or denigrated for 3 decades. Hay fever and erectile dysfunction research get better funding. Dr. Judy Mikovits for woman of the year.

. As we perused the list, which includes both the 1% and the 99%, we loved seeing which candidates could earn the 2011 honor and considering who might be the "people's choice."
While only eight of the 32 TIME candidates are individual women, the choices are certainly women many of us have strong opinions about -- whether it's based on politics (Michele Bachmann
, Hillary Clinton), matrimony (Kate Middleton
, Kim Kardashian
), or media frenzy (Casey Anthony
Because Shine is a place where we love strong opinions and because we are all about giving out awards at the end of each year, we're putting together our own list of noteworthy candidates. But our list is all ladies. Who do you think deserves to be Shine's Woman of the Year 2011? Tell us!
Is it someone who made big news several times over like gun violence survivor Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords
Or someone who made a splash in her own way, like 48-year old Penny Palfrey, who set the world record for longest solo unassisted swim
? We want to hear from you! Which woman deserves Shine's best title for 2011?
