Photo Campaign for Lyme Disease- Join It.

United Lyme Action (ULA) is launching a photo campaign to get more media attention for Lyme disease. 
Our goal is to raise awareness about the fact that the CDC and HMOs are ignoring the Lyme disease epidemic.
Some celebrities have already agreed to participate. Actress Jane Alexander will be contributing a photo to the campaign. Actor/producer/painter JOHN LURIE will be promoting the campaign in an interview on the Huffington Post. 
Our goal is to get 500 pictures up in the next 2 weeks before the Huffington Post article comes out.
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. 
Here’s How You Can Be Part of the Campaign
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.” 
We plan to develop the photos, connect them into banners, and send them to 4 major news networks.

One thought on “Photo Campaign for Lyme Disease- Join It.

  1. This campaign has me a bit baffled. We all have Lyme, but we are not one of the 300,000, because we did not have positive IGeneX tests OR Elisa… we only had a couple bands and were diagnosed by symptoms and the theory (about the tests) that “where there is smoke, there is fire.”

    So my family is not one of the 300K. We are still the people that can’t even get a positive test result.

    What category are we in?
