I just wanted to start a post regarding how important it is to help Dr. Jones. We need to support him now. Every dollar counts. If everyone gave a small amount it would all add up. Below is a post from Ellen


Dr. Jones' Legal Defense Fund will be running out of
money in the very near future. As some of you may
know, the medical board has made additional charges
against which Dr. Jones must now defend himself.

If Dr. J cannot afford a legal defense, then we can
assume that he is far more likely to lose his case,
which could mean losing his license to practice
medicine.

We can't let that happen.

So one thing you can do is contribute whatever you can
to Dr. Jones' Legal Defense Fund.

Only about 40 people showed up at his hearing
yesterday. I haven't spoken to Dr. Jones, but I think
we can all guess how discouraging that must be for
him, as it would be for anyone. If we contribute as
soon as possible, it will get the message to him that
we support him at the same time as we make sure he
gets a legal defense.

TO CONTRIBUTE TO DR. JONES' LEGAL DEFENSE FUND;
Please go to www.DefendLymeDoctors.com

On the left hand side there is a link allowing you to
contribute. It brings you to a page with paypal to
contribute by credit card and an address if you want
to make your contribution by check.
Thanks all,
Ellen

Thanks for posting this!!

Was the board notified of the hearing?? I never saw it, but then I don't go to Activism.

Is Jenifer not allowing posts of this nature in Medical??

I will send $$$ what I can to Dr Jones defense fund. I sent some earlier, but I know he needs more, and we need HIM!!

We are talking about a doctor who has took on children.Most llmd's wont touch a kid till there 16.
Is there any psychiatric doctor that has looked at some of these children,and can help Dr.Jones.
Surely someone can go on the stand and prove the manhelped there child.
Even past patients,any way of contacting them.If there child is healthy now,you would think they would show up.
This man could have quit his practice 20 years ago,now he is in trouble for helping someone.
Wish i could do more.But before this happens again,the lyme community needs prepared for it.
Where are all the lyme foundations?Are they doing anything?I dont know,just wondering.

This was on page 3. Please if you can even send a few dollars it all adds up. Dr. Jones needs our help.

Lymetoo, I would really like to encourage you and others to go to the Activism site regularly to see what action alerts are there. I know you do so much to help people with their day-to-day medical issues, but we are all done for if we don't keep our eyes open for what needs to happen for us to maintain access to adequate care and work diligently towards that end.

"Help Or Be Helpless" Please visit "Activism" board daily. See the threads regarding the IDSA Guidelines crisis and the threads about Dr. Charles Ray Jones and decide how best to help today!

The Medical Review Board will not allow the parents of or the children he has helped to testify. it is a mockery of a trial with many injustices. From what I understand there were many who requested to be able to testify.
