It's important to know that ANYONE from any state can sign the link below to contact the New York State Governor, not just New York State residents. There is a drop down for every state and we need everyones' help ASAP!

http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact/GovernorContactForm.php

Be sure to put Bill Number S7854-A7558B in the subject line and Healthcare in the topic line. Please urge the Governor to sign this bill into law.

ALL OF OUR MEMBERS must participate in this effort, no one can afford to sit back and do nothing. As each state receives protections by law, there will be more momentum for other states to follow suit.

Right now the bill has passed but is sitting on the Governor's desk for him to sign into law. There are no guarantees that he will do so, unless we make our voices heard. We have been here before when Governor Pataki DID NOT sign a similar Bill into law.

We MUST make this happen. It will take you all of four minutes to click on the link and fill it out.

http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact/GovernorContactForm.php

Everyone, please take a minute of your time to help out. This is so important to the entire Lyme Community.

Done!

Abxnomore, thank you for all your posts alerting us. If you didn't do this, I wouldn't have known that people from out of NY state could help! This is SO IMPORTANT!

Everyone: remember to visit Activism!

Tincup did a wonderful job (in Activism) posting an easy letter for people to use (below). I'm so glad I visited there today! :)

I suggest people edit, copy (highlight it, then press Ctrl C) and paste (Ctrl V) this into Abxnomore's link above to get the bill passed. Remember to copy and paste the Bill number like Abxnomore suggested.

This stuff is crucial for all lyme patients everywhere. Everything we do helps, and the power of the pen will get it done!

Re: S7854-A7558B

My family had to go to NY to find a doctor who knew how to diagnose and treat Lyme disease because in ______ (your state) there weren't any.

Patients world wide still depend on the NY doctors to educate others, properly treat people and bring desperately sick patients to a point of wellness.

Three decades of using the same unproven treatment protocols that didn't work then and don't work now is senseless. We deserve better.

The current treatment guidelines preferred by insurers due to the cost savings are not based on solid science, and they were designed by those shown to have major conflicts of interest. The guidelines restrict more than they allow with no basis provided for the restrictions.

Patients with Lyme should have the same rights as any other person and be able, with their doctors, to chose the best and up-to-date protocols available.

Thirty years of suppression is enough! People want and deserve choices. They want/need to get well.

This bill helps everyone and hurts no one.

EXCELLENT, now let's all get moving New York residents or otherwise. Urge the Governor to sign this bill into law by clicking on the link. The Bill has been passed, the Governor must decide whether or not to sign it and may it the law and it's up to us to let him know how important it is to us all.

We cannot let this die, we must be heard--every last one of us and from every state in the Union.

I hope others are clicking on that link and asking the governor to sign this bill into law. There's a drop down that lists every state, so anyone can contact him and urge him to sign the bill into law.

Remember to put Bill Number S7854-A7558B in the subject line.

http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact/GovernorContactForm.php

Let us hear from you, if you have. This is so important.

Hi all - we are going to keep the sections more organized - Medical info/questions in Medical, Support in Support, Activism in Activism, and no, I haven't checked Off-Topic lately!

If the activism issue is an urgent alert, then threads can be posted in Medical to go see the post in either Activism or General Support, since actions are supportive of Lyme patients/doctors, etc.

Go to General Support here:
