Call To Action for the Mayday Project Team


Places to Contact During the Philadelphia ID Week Protest

Hey everyone, the Mayday Project team is asking that starting today, Oct 8th, you start contacting everyone on this list and asking them to review the science behind Lyme Disease and other tick borne infections. Let them know Lyme patients will not give up or go away until this is done.
