Do you have or know someone who has Lyme disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson, ALS, MS or an unexplained illness?
You need to see this movie!
 
A dramatic tale of microbes, medicine and money, this eye-opening film investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians as they battle for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our health care system and its ability to cope with a silent terror under our skin.


We Are The 300,000" LYME MEDIA CAMPAIGN

The Lyme community is launching a photo campaign to get more media attention for Lyme.

Our goal is to raise awareness about how the CDC and HMOs are ignoring Lyme.

We have already started to achieve this goal. Actor/producer/painter JOHN LURIE has agreed to promote the campaign on the Huffington Post. Another prominent actress just agreed to add her photo and lend her voice to the campaign (we'll be announcing who it is soon). And news anchor BROOKE LANDAU who was on the Dr. Phil Show about Lyme has agreed to add her photo. We're in discussion with more celebrities as well.

We're asking people to take a photo of themselves holding a sign saying, "I am one of the 300,000 plus annual Lyme patients being ignored by the CDC and HMOs."

For detailed instructions: http://lyme300000.wordpress.com/

Please email your photos to: lyme300000@yahoo.com

Examples of photos: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lyme300000

We will also develop the photos and send them to 4 major news outlets.

DEADLINE

Photos need to be sent in by NOVEMBER 1ST.
