Oct. Lyme Support Meeting: Kathy Nodolf & TRUTHCURES

October Lyme Support Group Speaker:

Kathy Nodolf of TRUTHCURES

When:  October 13

Time:  2:30-4:30

Where:  East Madison Police Station, 809 S Thompson St. Madison, WI.  Parking info here: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/east-dist-parking-visitor-parking.pdf No parking allowed in red areas. You may park in the dotted yellow areas, in-between the light poles and in the last row under the red, as well as on the road leading up to the station.

 

We are honored to hear and learn from Lyme Advocate Kathy Nodolf of TRUTHCURES, whom candidly admits to trusting the medical establishment for 20 years for her son who had severe neurological Lyme disease.  He unfortunately succumbed to the disease and passed.

With the heartbreaking loss of her son, she has vowed to make everyone aware of this disease tsunami by becoming politically active and speaking up for patients whom are too sick to speak for themselves.

She feels we are on the right track by exposing the correct definition of the disease with scientific discoveries continually validating what TRUTHCURES has maintained for 20 years.

Having been active with HHS prior to the selection of the Tick Borne Disease Working Group (TBDWG), she has given statements and has closely followed their actions.  She will discuss her concerns about the TBDWG and what we can do to be Pro-active.  More on the TBDWG:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/02/11/anti-patient-bias-embedded-in-tickborne-disease-working-group-and-its-subcommittees/

I was also able to successfully able to convince WI Representative Mark Pocan to join the Lyme Caucus:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/05/23/wi-representative-mark-pocan-joins-lyme-caucus/

Please, contact your reps and senators today, letting them know we need them to speak up for the Wisconsin residents who are debilitated due to tick borne disease.  It’s going to take all of us working together to move this mountain.  Never underestimate the power of one.  Just try sleeping with a mosquito!

Also, spread the word to willing medical practitioners to become properly trained:

Dr. Coleman Talk Postponed

Dr. Coleman will NOT be speaking this Saturday, April 28.  I’m hoping to reschedule him perhaps in May.

I will not be there either as I’ve contracted the chest-cold from hell.  Trust me, you do not want this….  

The room is still being held so feel free to come, meet people, encourage others, and share ideas.

Hope to be rid of this thing and back in the saddle by May’s meeting.

Onward!
