A large rally will be held in Victoria, BC on May 11, 2013. Our family will be attending. Both Graham and Taylor will be speaking. You are invited! We'd love to have you there!

Please join us in honouring the first "World Lyme Disease Day", held in 30 countries world-wide to bring awareness about Lyme Disease. We'll be gathering at the steps of the Legislature building, in downtown Victoria, BC. 
Speakers include: 

~Elizabeth May, Green party leader and author of private members bill for a National Lyme Disease Strategy

The Victoria Lyme Disease Support and Awareness group is hosting this event, and will be there handing out informational pamphlets and answering any questions you may have. 

This event is crucial to the public's awareness of Lyme Disease, and to our own quest for justice and help in our home towns. 

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.
