Then send the link to friends and family asking them to sign.
The following paragraphs from the LDA give more explanation of the issue:
"The new IDSA guidelines published in October by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) are already causing patients to be denied treatment for chronic Lyme disease. The guidelines have recommended against any long term treatments, listing numerous specific antibiotic classes not to be given, listing alternative treatments and even supplements not to be offered to Lyme patients. Clinical discretion has been removed from treating physicians. We ask that you, your families, and friends across the country sign this petition immediately. Lyme treatment is at stake.
"Petition Information: The petition on this website is for those 18 years and older to sign. Names and addresses will NOT appear on the internet but will be printed out with the petition when it is ready to be presented to the appropriate entity. LDA never sells names, nor shares them with marketers. The petition will be used in an effort to advance our cause at the appropriate time and will be kept private until that time. Remember, like many of you, LDA is all patients and families of patients ? and all volunteer."
I may have signed this already but, can't even remember yesterday so it's possible that I resigned....hope it's OK,
