Save Elise from the ticks!
My baby daughter, Elise, lives in prime tick habitat: Every time she goes in our yard, she is at risk of Lyme disease. Chances are your kids are, too.
You may know I've been working with the nation's top tick researcher to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease.
You may NOT know Lyme is the #2 infectious disease in Massachusetts, after syphilis. Tick research is chronically underfunded, and without more attention, we'll never get effective treatments like a vaccine.
By voting for this South by Southwest talk, we'll push tick-disease prevention onto a national stage, right up there with cancer and all the horrible other random diseases. The difference is tick diseases ARE PREVENTABLE.
We just need to focus our attention and resources. Voting ends today. Vote now so Elise -- and everyone -- can live Lyme-free!http://bit.ly/TickvsHumansSXSW
