Information Booth at the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society

Conference 2014

DAFOH hosted a booth to increase awareness on forced organ harvesting at the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, ILADS, 2014 annual conference ILADS 2014 DC in Washington DC. Over 500 doctors from all over the US, Canada, Europe and Australia attended this event about the treatment of the growing epidemic of tick borne diseases.
ILADS doctors, nurses, and patient advocates took great interest in the DAFOH booth, learning about the atrocities of forced organ harvesting in China, requesting evidence and printed information, and by signing petitions condemning this genocide. Most had never heard anything about forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China, the persecution of religious and spiritual groups for profit, or the pending legislation in the US to halt the practice and prevent global collusion in these practices.

Visiting the booth, a doctor from Poland was moved to tears when she learned the truth.  She took informational materials to share with her colleagues in Poland and for her husband’s coworkers here in DC.  A nephrologist from a prestigious American medical clinic was shocked and saddened to review the evidence, especially the staggering numbers of rapid kidney transplants in China and the high profile advertising efforts of the Chinese transplant hospitals to recruit nephrology patients world wide.

Many doctors from the US signed a petition supporting the pending Congressional H.Res. 281, while others signed DAFOH’s petition to the UN. Many health care professionals from around the world registered to receive the DAFOH newsletter. Dr. Leo Shea, past president of ILADS learned about forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China at the DAFOH booth.

This year, the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Fund, ILADEF, honored Dr. Charles Ray Jones  as someone who makes a difference in our understanding of Lyme and associated diseases. Dr. Shea gave the speech honoring Charles Ray Jones, MD, and thereby highlighting the virtues of a physician :
“This year the ILADS Educational Foundation is presenting its Pioneer Award to a man we have long admired, Dr. Charles Ray Jones. Through his inestimable contributions to the field of medicine especially related to but, not limited to tick-borne illnesses Dr. Jones has imparted a unique and singular perspective to pediatricians and patients worldwide.
Like all pioneers, his journey has not been an easy one. However those who know him understand that the construction of his character demands that he traverse the moral, social and medical landscape with the inquisitive mind of a scholar, the third eye of a great clinician, and the compassionate and fearless heart of a warrior.
His open mind and creative spirit have combined to advance his heroic initiatives in confronting injustice, whether it be in civil rights or patient rights.
Aquinas says, “The life of a man consists in the love that principally sustains him and in which he finds greatest satisfaction.” We who honor you this evening Dr. Jones wish you continued satisfaction for many years in the field that has sustained you and which you love.
Ladies and Gentlemen I present the 2014 Pioneer Award honoree, Dr. Charles Ray Jones”.
Dr. Jones, despite enduring much in his fight for children with Lyme disease, is still an inspiration for us all.
