My new personalized car license plate, Thankful for my healthcare provider that was professionally trained by The International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society (ILADS).
Thank you ILADS and CBS for the Lyme Awareness Campaign. I hope it can save many others from being diagnosed so late in the game. Public awareness is key!
I am very pleased that more awareness is being made, there is no support group in Tennessee, I have been sick for 4 years, my children and spouse are being tested too. Thank you.
I am 16. I have had Lyme since I was 3yrs old. My mom cannot afford to get me treated. Some days I cannot make it to school. Thank you for the opportunity to help show the world Lyme disease is real.
It is so exciting to get the word out about the danger and prevalence of lyme disease on such a large scale, and have visuals showing just how many people Lyme Disease affects. Thank you!
Chronic Lymes took me away from my children for 2 yrs. It is financially devastating due to corruption in the health care system. I now collect Disability, medicare and medicaid. Care of Chronic Lymes patients is costing MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of YOUR TAX DOLLARS! Please help in awareness, research and prevention. Thank you.
Dear ILADS, I can't Thank you enough for the role you have played in my recovery! A special Thank you to Dr. Richard Horowitz for his support and for protecting my children from this horrible disease. Randi Einzig Minneapolis, MN
Been battling Lyme disease since 2007 but did not get diagnosis till 2010, doctors in my home town did not believe I had it so now I suffer from chronic Lyme disease which is much harder to treat. I kept telling them I was not feeling well and even had the bite mark as well as most of the symptoms of Lyme disease. I had no choice but to seek another help in another province where one of my sisters lives as I knew my life was in jeopardy. You would think they would listen to a Registered Nurse of 23years?????
Thank you to ILADS for helping to get the word out on this dibilitating disease of supreme significance. Hopefully heath will follow to many! I (Ellen) was misdiagnosed 8 yrs. ago. Finally diagnosed this past July, 2011, positive with Lyme Disease.
Thankyou so much for this, we need all the information out there to help all the lymies, and those who are just contracting this serious lyme illness!! THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Think that the ILDAS Jumbro Tron sign is Awesome. I Have Chronic Lyme Disease and Babesia. Recently diagnosed August 30, 2011,and wish that I was aware of this 3 years ago. I did test positive July 2009 for Lyme Disease, unfortunately, I was not treated properly, then I was told by Specialist that I never had Lyme Disease and chased doctors for 3 years only to be misdiagnosed. I finally found a wonderful LLMD and I am now being treated properly, as my family would not stand by and watch me become disable. This Disease is Widespread and People should be aware. The Guidelines really need to be changed. I am so Thankful for CBS & ILDAS for Advertising the Awareness that words cannot describe. The dates for the ILADS are perfect, especially for NYC. Thank You Very Much...
This ad on the Jumbro Tron is awesome! Myself and all 5 of my children have Lyme Disease! Thank you for getting the word out! All of our children got Lyme while I was pregnant with them!! If I only knew I had the disease or even had info about Lyme they could be well!!!
Hi my name is Janet Johnson I live in England. I was bitten by a deer tick when I was on holiday in New Jersey in 2010. I have struggled ever since, and getting treatment and understanding is almost impossible. Thanks for the support the ILADS give to not only Americans but us in other countries that are suffering
Please protect your family and friends from this disease and its' co-infections.Victim since 2002.
I'm happy about the Jumbo Tron. These may be small steps, but steps forward for us nontheless. Would be nice to have more time being up, with varied messages. List of the many we have lost to Lyme as one of the messages.
Please help find a cure for Lymes.... Change the insurance protocol so Doctor's will be able to treat Chronic Lymes that is a slient killer to so many lives.
Went undiagnosed for over 14 years, treatment came to late. Permanent neurological problems and bone loss, now disabled. Get EDUCATED against LYME! your friend in lyme, Barbara
What a fantastic way to educate people about the increase of Lyme disease. Betty has been suffering since 1994 because she was misdiagnosed for 4 years as a result of an approved accurate laboratory test. Thank you ILADS!
It's great! I'd like something like this in Germany. But here, as You know, we Lyme-doctors were neglected by other physicians or politicians. It is better to have MS, rheumatoid arthritis, depression or ADS. Thank You for Your activities!!
This sickness just came out of no where! Was mis diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, twice. The FDA approved MS drug Rebif, was the beginning of my current living death. Went from hiking in te Himalayas in 2001, disability retirement 2006, and using a walker to move through my own house in 2008.
I've had Lyme disease for over 13 years. I'm so thankful that you are using this sign to help raise awareness!
I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in July 2011. I had tests for a lot of different things, including Lupus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, etc., before my Dr. informed me I had Lyme. I was given a 10 day supply of Doxycycline, off a few days, given another 10 day supply, off a few days, and at my request was given a 30 day supply. I was so tired I was staying asleep most of my day. I started reading all I could about Lyme, and watching online video's. I had NO idea how devastating this disease was. I welcome any and all information about Lyme and encourage ALL DR.s to test their patients immediately when they have the symptoms of being exhausted, having joint pain, constant headaches like they have never had before. I am 65 years old and a lot of these symptoms go with age. The Dr.'s should not just assume age is what is causing these symptoms. I love the fact there is now a JumboTron ILADS message and commend CBS for helping to spread the news about Lyme. Thank you. Brenda
I look at this photo and think of the time before Lyme Disease when I could hike and work and not have pain. Here's to looking at life through a glass half full and Hope. There's always hope.
I have had Lyme and related Infections for 19 years due to late diagnosis. if it were not for the ILADS Group of Physicians. I wonder if I would still be here.......
We make the best we can Out of ever second we are allowed to not be bedridden, we will not let a tick ruin our lives.
My son around the time he contracted Lyme, we did not know this at the time, 10 out of 10 bands. Awareness is key - - JumboTron in all major cities!!
Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible. Quote from Dr. B. Lown
Be a Lyme Advocate and Pay it Forward Upon Your Recovery Give Hope to Those in Need!!
Great idea. The public needs to be informed and be made aware of the dangers of walking in wooded areas. Thank you.
Physician unawareness and disbelief in Late Stage Lyme Disease have resulted in ruining my health and in ruining me financially.
