Require Lyme Testing for Alzheimer's Patients
Alzheimer's and Dementia have been closely associated with, if not directly related to Lyme disease in recent studies. In light of these recent revelations, we petition that modern and accurate Lyme Disease tests be implemented for each patient diagnosed with these ailments.

CBS This Morning: Redact pseudoscience segment on profit-seeking Dr Gayatri Devi
5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, and there are more than 15 million caregivers. My dad is just one of those 5.5 million, but there are expected to be as many as 16 million Americans with Alzheimer's by 2050. Why would the NIH and the Alzheimer's Association predict this growth if "exercising 30 minutes a day, three times a week and eating a Mediterranean diet could prevent 60% of Alzheimer's cases." This is what Dr. Gayatri Devi alleged on CBS This Morning and in her new book, Spectrum of Hope. My family and so many others have been fighting this disease and fundraising because according to credible sources like the Alzheimer's Association, there is NO PREVENTION and NO WAY TO SLOW PROGRESSION, which Dr. Devi says is a myth. CBS, we will NEVER find a cure for Alzheimer's if you do not redact Dr. Devi's statements to make it clear that her statements are only opinions NOT science. For the real facts, talk to the Alzheimer's Association or the NIH. Do not talk to someone trying to profit from the suffering of millions of Americans trying to find hope in this hopeless disease. My father was a triathlete, a pilot, a lawyer, and an overall amazing dad. He was smart, funny, and kind. So I have never been more insulted or hurt by a morning news show than I was this morning. I wish Dr. Devi could meet my father in the dementia care facility he lives in and tell me that his disease was preventable or that his progress could have been slowed. Friends, please support this petition and a media that vets their guests and their work before misleading millions who watch these segments. TLDR: Dr. Devi went on CBS This Morning to profit off of her book which misleads millions into thinking Alzheimer's disease is preventable/can be stopped. CBS This Morning should redact these statements as to not mislead their viewers.

Quality Care For The Elderly And Disabled
As an elder advocate for the state of Arkansas, I am passionate about reforming guardianship laws, protecting wards' most fundamental rights and liberties as well as supporting the Peter Falk bill, Right of Association, that has passed in six states during this 2016 session. This piece of legislation addresses a national epidemic of isolation in guardianships whereby all too often a guardian restricts visits, telephone calls, sending and receiving mail, withholds medical emergencies from family members, etc. This bill is a checks and balances approach and levels the playing field as guardians wield tremendous power and authority over wards and adults with disabilities, often times subjecting our loved ones to exploitation due to a lack of oversight and accountability of the guardian by the court. I hope that you will consider sponsoring this much needed legislation for the state of Arkansas. I know that Peter Falk's daughter Catherine Falk along with her patterning organization, The National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse, will help in whatever way possible to lobby and testify for the passage of this legislation. There are three bills that the Falk~NASGA team worked tirelessly with their sponsors in Colorado, Utah and South Dakota. These three bills are the most extensive for your review, upon request via email: (email@example.com) I hope that you will consider sponsoring this bill and look forward to hearing from you.
