Just passing along this email


Hi CanLymies,

Oprah is deciding whether to do a show on Lyme THIS WEEK, and we need to fill her comment board ASAP. According to the show producer, emails directly to Oprah will NOT be read; you need to post here:

Having Oprah feature Lyme will help the new bill in Congress and it will pressure the new IDSA panel to do the right thing.

Note that there is a 200 word limit. The important thing is that you post a paragraph or two about your personal story, not how long it is.

Can we please ask you to post again asking Dr. Oz and Oprah to do a show on UNDER OUR SKIN, the documentary that exposes the truth about Lyme disease?? (There are only 129 posts up there now.)

Here is how:
Here is the link where you can post a message - if you are already a member of Oprah's community.

If you are not a member of the Oprah community, you will need to sign up first:
click on this link to sign up:

Once you have filled out the appropriate info -- easy stuff, name, username, email address, birth year -- then you will get an email to your email address: You'll get an email from Oprah's web people sending you an activation link that you will need to click on in order to get started. Then you can click on the above link and post your comments.

It sounds harder than it is, if you haven't done it before.
Thanks so much for your efforts.

Please ask for a show on Lyme Disease It is EASY.

You just register, then get an activation link to enable you to post.

There are a lot of stories.

Just write a couple of short sentences - or your story if you feel like it.

The more posts, the greater our chances to get awareness and help.

We need it desperately.

This is disabling a lot of people and it is just the beginning!
