I just mostly copied and pasted this from a post I put on another thread a few days ago. Made a couple of changes. Hope it is helpful.
I just did quick web searches to find out each of their addresses.
Will try to find time to cut and paste them all onto another post, in the near future. (Have been spending time trying to get CCSVI info. sheets made to hand out at the upcoming MS walk. Yikes! So much to do.)
Make a few changes to reflect your own situation and opinion...then copy and paste the same letter to:
your MLA, (Member of Provincial legislature)
MP, (Member of Parliament)
Health Ministers (federal and provincial)
Heath Critics (federal and provincial) (reps. from opposition parties)
The federal and provincial leaders of opposition parties.
Send your letter to Health Canada
Oh, and don't forget the Prime Minister!
I am serious! These people are paid to work for you!!
You may also want to point out that this is a matter of great urgency to the approximately 75000 Canadians suffering with MS, and particularly to those diagnosed with the primary progressive disease who are often subject to rapid and irreversible decline.
Here is what I emailed to the Prime Minister
Dear Mr Harper:
You are no doubt aware that recent scientific studies indicate that more that half of persons suffering with multiple sclerosis, also have a serious vascular condition called Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI.
This is a vascular condition in which venous circulation from the brain is seriouly compromised. The results to the brain are inadequate oxygen perfusion to brain tissue, and other damage to the brain related to compromised blood circulation.
The condition can be diagnosed by means of doppler ultrasound, MRV, and veinogram. All of these diagnostic techniques are safe and have been in use in Canada for many years. There is nothing experimental about these diagnostic procedures.
Treatment is generally done by balloon veinoplasty. This procedure has also been carried out on veins in other parts of the body for many years in Canada. There is a very small, and well documented risk associated with this procedure. It is inexpensive, and done on an outpatient basis.
You may be aware that Canadians have been travelling out of the country to receive this necessary medical screening and treatment. Canadians have been treated in the United States, Poland, and Germany and India.
Many Canadians living with multiple sclerosis are not able to afford to travel outside of the county to receive medical care. They are being told to wait. Waiting for a person with multiple sclerosis means continuing to accumulate possibly irreversible brain damage. This is not satisfactory.
Last week the government of Kuwait, after studying the available published scientific research, decided that all persons in Kuwait living with multiple sclerosis should be screened for this serious vascular condition, and those found to be in need of treatment will be treated.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience to tell me what steps are being taken to start the immediate screening of the 75,000 Canadians for CCSVI, and the immediate treatment of those most in need of vascular intervention.
I can be contacted by return email or at the following address or telephone number.
