APR 5, 2017 — We are 2 Canadians – Jennifer Kravis (lawyer) and Sue Faber (nurse) – Moms who have been diagnosed with Lyme disease, as well as our children, representing tens of thousands of Canadians Concerned about Lyme disease. We are the authors of this Petition.
We are travelling to Ottawa and will be on Parliament Hill on Wednesday April 12 and Thursday April 13, 2017 to ask the Health Minister Jane Philpott whether the Government is putting into action the outcry of YOUR voices - more than 38,000 Canadians who signed this Ticking Lyme Bomb petition - Link Here: http://bit.ly/2lfBuNL.
We are also going to Ottawa to hand deliver to the Health Minister more than ten thousand petition comments and personal letters written by Canadian men, women and children literally pleading to be heard about their profound suffering and neglect as a result of the denial and lack of treatment for Lyme disease in Canada.
Our federal government passed Bill 442 requiring that an Action Plan be created based on the best available information from medical and scientific experts and from patients themselves. The current draft Plan is a failure of that mandate. If the Final Framework for Lyme disease is not fixed, the Lyme bomb will keep ticking and more and more Canadians will be at risk.
What can YOU do to support us? So glad you asked… here are some ideas…
1. We need MORE Petition signatures, please try to think of 5 new people you haven’t asked yet and send it to them asking them to sign and share,
2. If you are in the Ottawa area on Wed. April 12 or Thurs. April 13, stop by Parliament Hill and look for us (the Ticking Lyme Moms) with the lime green umbrellas,
3. Consider making a donation to our cause through our Go Fund Me Page here:
We cannot issue tax receipts. To date, we have been funding all of our advocacy work out of our own pockets. Donations of any size would be much appreciated.
4. Follow the Ticking Lyme Moms on Twitter @tickinglyme, on the web at www.lymehope.ca and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/lymehopecanada/
THANK YOU and wish us LUCK on the Hill.
