July 7, 2008


Dear Friends,

Urgent! I must raise $90,000 by July 14, 2008 and an additional $110,000 by August 10 in order to retain the legal team which has been representing me. If these sums are not raised, I will not be able to continue defending the charges brought against me by the Connecticut Department of Public Health for my treatment of children with Lyme disease, and I fear that I will be forced by the Connecticut Medical Examining Board to resign my license to practice medicine and to retire. This must not happen!

I understand all too well the considerable hardship that Lyme disease has imposed on too many families, and regret the need to appeal to you yet again for donations to my legal defense fund. Yet the prospect of surrendering this critical fight is more daunting: If I do not continue to oppose these charges, how many more physicians will be left vulnerable to similar charges for their treatment of Lyme disease? How many more sick children will be abandoned?

I recognize that the figure of $200,000 appears overwhelming. However:

If 10,000 families contribute $20, we will be able to meet our goal;
If 4,000 give $50, we will be able to meet our goal;
If 2,000 give $100, we will be able to meet our goal;
If every member of the Lyme community gives something, we will reach this goal!!!

I am confident that we can succeed, but I need the help of each and every one of you. Time is of the essence and you must respond today. In return, I pledge to you that I will not give up this fight.


With my greatest appreciation,

Dr. Jones

Charles Ray Jones, M.D.

Please keep this post on the top. Dr. Jones can lose his license without more help from us. I know that many Lyme people would not want to miss this post.

Also, I just want to emphasize that an old website that had information about how to pay is defunct. Don't use it.

Please contribute as described in Dr. Jones' letter

I've given in the past several times. I'm going to reassess my finances over here and see what I can do.

Please contribute anything you can, guys!!!!

i've been giving since this started too.


i wrote my check today; told hubby only ONE check this year towards this...


this month will be costly for us!


learned last week that we have to have a new SEWER PIPE put in; 25% gone from original steel one!!! so estimate until we get figures are $7,000 plus.


2 wks. ago we poured new front step as last winter's ice storms/salt used ate it up and it was unsafe to step on .... cracking all up!


so had that dug out plus new public sidewalk and removed sidewalk leading to front step....


then plumbers out 3 times so far for storm water drainage where we had 1" on 2 occasions, and last time being sewer ... CLEAN WATER AT LEAST!!
