“Hi everyone!! Tony & Frances here- we are the producers of The Monster Inside Me, Lyme documentary, along with Paul Cho (The Angriest Man in Brooklyn and Tallulah). Our dream and deepest desire is to finish this film (please watch our teaser and visit our website) and send it to the film festival circuit so that we have a chance to get the doc seen by tons of people. We also want to do private viewings around the country, wherever you are. That is our goal and dream.
This movie is being created BY Lyme Warriors FOR Lyme Warriors and their families and friends. The music is being composed by artists that suffer with Lyme, as is all the editing and production. This is OUR movie about what WE suffer with. It is about showing the world what Lyme is, unmasked, raw. Yet at the same time, it is unveiling what transformations this disease causes when the Warrior pushes through, doesn’t give up, seeks treatment and shares their story. We want your loved ones to understand you, to have an “aha” moment when watching the movie. But mostly, we want to give you hope, as we interview doctors and leading scientists about healing and living with Lyme.
We also point the camera at ourselves showing the world what Lyme does to a relationship, to your body, mind and soul! In this journey of 18 months now, we came across AMAZING people who shun light in our paths, helped us heal in more ways than one, and allowed us to see the purpose and beauty, dare we say it, of Lyme Disease. We want to share this with you…. in the art form of film.
The vast majority of the movie has been filmed. We need the last leg to do a few more trips – including an interview with a leading scientist and Lyme specialiset at the University of Connecticut, and Dr. Horowitz, in NY. Once we are done with that, post production comes to play, where long hours will be spent on color grading, correction, the film soundtrack, mixing, etc. This is the bulk of our costs, although very tight.
Please help by contributing and then asking a few people around you to do the same. Share the trailer, share the story. We appreciate it and love you guys!
There is currently a form of a class-action lawsuit in development against the CDC and other entities causing personal injury to the public regarding the lack of use, suppression, and failure to promote a PCR (DNA sequencing) test, developed by Dr. Sin Hang Lee, which has been available since 2010 for early Lyme disease detection.
Please go to the following link and read the information in it’s entirety. This is very important for many, many, people!
In a July 4th article, author Jenna Luche-Thayer describes how the CDC’s profile has plummeted while 15 other government authorities are acting on persistent and disabling Lyme Disease. She questions the motives of the CDC and the view they project concerning chronic Borreliosis.
This is a must read for anyone who doesn’t fully understand why the CDC isn’t treating this (persistent Lyme infection) as the epidemic it is.

The Mayday Project is sponsoring a protest in front of The White House. We are calling on all Lyme Victims to join us and appeal to President Donald Trump to call for an immediate Congressional Hearing of the CDC in regards to their handling of Lyme Disease. For too long the CDC has given preferential treatment to the IDSA, following their antiquated, falsified guidelines for Lyme Disease Diagnosis and Treatment

*According to a public post on Facebook by Dr. Horowitz, in response to the PressReader article here http://www.pressreader.com/usa/arkansas-democrat-gazette/20170326/285568085111026, he noted several inaccuracies he was unable to ignore.
As Dr. Horowitz stated in his post, “…..Although I do not usually report articles on the internet that have inaccurate information (there are many), here is a report from Pressreader about Lyme and co-infections in Arkansas that deserves a detailed response.”
In his posting, Dr. Horowitz pointed out five major inaccuracies in the article. The following are direct quotes from Dr. Horowitz’ Facebook posting:
“Lyme is a clinical diagnosis, and I suspect there is a lot more Lyme in Arkansas than reported. Only 25% (or less) of patients get EM rashes, and in one prior NIH double-blind study (Dr Brian Fallon), only 1% of patients with neurological Lyme had positive two tiered testing but were still ill, and many responded to treatment with antibiotics. “
“Secondly, certain species of borrelia, like borrelia miyamotoi, can be transmitted transovarially (from the mother to the eggs), and in NYS, 10-20% of the ticks contain B. miyamotoi, causing a Lyme-like illness.”
“Third inaccuracy: birds do transmit multiple species of borrelia and other co-infections (including Bartonella) to ticks, explaining in part the spread of these illnesses worldwide. There are many scientific articles proving this.”
“Fourth, RMSF can be devoid of a rash in 40% of patients (and 60% of the time, it is on the hands and feet), and can be associated with low white cell counts (leucopenia), low platelet counts (thrombocytopenia), and elevated liver functions (transaminitis) which helps a clinician to make the diagnosis.”
“Finally, STARI has been determined to be due to a borrelia sensu lato species (Dr Kerry Clark discovered that years ago) and there are individuals who have severe manifestations of STARI, including death from Lyme carditis. So you DO treat STARI, as you would treat Lyme, and do not assume it is necessarily a more benign form of borreliosis.”
Dr. Horowitz’ reputation and experience with tick borne illnesses appears to exceed basic knowledge. He has been treating Lyme and tick borne diseases for 28 years.
