Lyme disease recognition and support

This petition had 191 supporters

I am a Lyme disease warrior and after years of treatment I  have gradually recovered and now in remission. I now work with many people who have Lyme disease or Lyme-like illness.  This disease is so extremely debilitating and the impact that it has on the person and their families is great.  Many people having to  travel overseas for treatment. Government recognition and support of this disease is still denied; unlike in other countries where you have Lyme treatment centres. To make things worse in South Australia they discontinued the testing of the Lymphocyte surface marker CD57, a valuable test for those with late stage chronic Lyme.  Please help and sign this petition to get this test reinstated in S.A., as this will make a major difference for those with Lyme disease and their families.
