My name is _________, I am a resident of _________(STATE), and I have suffered (or I have a child who has suffered) from Lyme disease for more than _____# years. (Personalize for your own situation.) I know that Congressman/woman _______________ is on the subcommittee dealing with HR 741, the Lyme and tick-borne disease bill. I am calling to ask him/her to ask committee chairman Frank Pallone to schedule a hearing on HR 741.

If he/she is not already a bill co-sponsor, I'm also asking him/her to please sign on to co-sponsor the bill also. Thanks.
