Donations Needed for the Stephen Seibert Legal Defense

From Bea Seibert:

“The sad reality is that simply because Steve had had chronic lyme for 12 years his physicians ignored 2 recent tickbites – 3.5 and 5 months prior to his hospitalization. On the day he died an outside lab found babesia on his blood smear which means he was a CDC reportable case – but the hospital never reported his babesiosis. Steve died from ARDS and a splenic infarction which are both well documented rare complications of babesia.

One blood smear for babesia is not sufficient testing to rule out the diagnosis. And babesia microti and babesia duncani are NOT the same thing and require different tests. After I went to the hospital medical ethics board I did eventually get Steve one week of babesia meds. But after the massive steroids and being off meds for 3 weeks it was too little too late.

As you can imagine I am having difficulty finding an attorney willing to take the case. The statute of limitations is rapidly approaching.

I really hate to ask for money, but this case is very important for everyone with lyme and tickborne illnesses. As far as I can determine there has never been a lawsuit filed for wrongful death due to a missed diagnosis of BABESIA.

IF THE CASE WINS I PLEDGE TO DONATE AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO TWICE YOUR DONATION TO TICKBORNE DISEASE REASERCH. ANY FUNDS COLLECTED AND NOT NEEDED TO PAY FOR THE COST OF THE LAWSUIT WILL ALSO BE DONATED.”

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
