Harrisburg Lyme Rally-Only 2 days away!!

Were getting closer! Only 2 days away from the Harrisburg Lyme Rally!!! We need you, the LYME YOUTH, YOUNG ADULTS, and their families to show your support for the Senate Bill 210. Wear your green! Bring your signs! There will be PRESS there and we need to see and hear the stories of our youth and how it’s impacting them. Our goal is to explain why this bill is needed so desperately. Check out LymeActionPA for the latest updates for Tuesday-5/24.

-Did you know Pennsylvania is #1 in reported cases in the U.S. and yet we have no prevention strategy, and were not even monitoring tick populations?

-Children are the most likely victims, ages 5-14 in particular. The impact on the brains and development of children can be very severe but can be improved if treated properly.

-Long term antibiotics work! They restore health and functionality. The cost of not treating us is much more significant then the potential risks of treatment.

– CDC says Lyme is a clinical diagnoses–based on signs and symptoms NOT the lab test alone. The lab test is widely known to be inadequate and a John’s Hopkins study from 2005,found it could miss as many as 75% of people who actually had the disease! A negative test can not rule out the disease, and yet physicians today are diagnosing based on “the old school” approach requiring a positive test no matter what.
