Bernie: Stand With the Hundreds of Thousands Suffering From Chronic Lyme Disease

We ask Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders to include the issue and controversy of chronic Lyme disease as part of his political platform.

I myself suffer from chronic Lyme disease and I am tired of insurance companies refusing to pay for my treatment. Healthcare is a right (as Senator Sanders has stated) and the health of our citizens should be a priority... No one should be ignored.

My doctors left me for dead though, and the only person that saved me was a Chinese physician in Corbett, Oregon. I wish I could show the picture here. I couldn't walk, and it hurt to sit or lie in any way. It is unreal what I went through. Medicare won't pay for any treatment, and if it does, it's oral antibiotics, which I'm deathly allergic to...
