Australia, let's get going

I haven't been here long but can see things are moving quickly. I've started in my own small way to stir up interest in Sydney, but lots of brick walls so far. Will keep trying though. Anyone else making progress here?

Best of luck to everyone.

I know the documentary brought tears to many of our eyes, but this:

Over 2000 on Facebook this am (1500 new members in one full day!)

This chokes me up. Think of all that hope!

Welcome, mazza !!! I'm trying to stir things up here in St Louis, Missouri, USA. I'm glad you came here all the way from Sydney.

I am making some headway. I am participating in Dr Haacke's study, and I have an appointment with a fabulous neuroradiologist. My scans will be on Dec 7 in Detroit and my neuroradiologist appointment is December 9 at 8 AM in St Louis. I just today got the appointment with the neuroradiologist and about an hour ago I emailed his assistant the information on CCSVI.

Hi Mazza,

Keep pluggng away. There's a small group of us in the north east US who are. We've been chipping away at 100 interventional radiologists at university hospitals and have gotten some interested doctors who are investgating it further.

Our goal is to open their eyes to CCSVI and then hope they believe in it.

Our next endeavor is the media.

Thanks for the encouragement. I plan to contact some of the major teaching hospitals in Sydney. Unfortunately my neurologist doesn't want to help me with this, which would make it easier. He's pushing medication (nearly 12 years now) but I would rather go down the CCSVI road. So far the response I'm getting is "it's too new, more research needs to be done."

I agree Michelle, the media is often more effective.

Fingers crossed for Ozarkcanoer.

Mazza, there's a thread called "Aussie Action" that several folks from Australia have made comments on so maybe you could coordinate with them?
