Autumn, 2006
from Pat Smith, President, Lyme Disease Association, Inc. (LDA)
"Crime against Lyme"

1. Important, Save the Date!
* Thursday November 30, 2006 The Lyme Rights Rally Group (you may remember them from Hartford Rally 2006) requests that you save that day, particularly if you live in the Northeast
* You won't want to miss this opportunity to make your voice heard.
* More details will follow from Lyme Rights Rally Group early next week.
1. Continue to get signers onto the petition- We are going on 14,000, keep it up!

2. Continue contacts with your local media about Guidelines impact on you/family/friends- You have sent dozens of letters to newspapers and a number have been published. Mention petition please. A number of Guidelines articles have appeared, too.

3. Continue VERY IMPORTANT STILL- Contact (phone/email) all of your FEDERAL legislators: your own US Congressman and your two US Senators by November 15 at Washington, DC office only. The contact should be with current legislator, NOT any newly elected who do not take office until new year (actions may take this session still so need support of current legislators). Groups should contact all Congressmen within their range (area they cover).
US Reps. & Senators DC contact information
* Tell them how Guidelines impact you/family/friends.
* Tell them CDC has essentially adopted the Guidelines (on their website)
4. Those patients already impacted by new guidelines, a form was sent out online for you to fill out. Thanks to those who have already responded, and if you still want to respond, please email for the form. You must have been denied services after Oct 2, 2006 with the Guidelines used as basis.

Keep up the actions please. Thanks!
