John Caudwell: Phones 4u founder calls on Government to research Lyme disease

Inspiring news for Lyme patients in the UK!! Perhaps we have finally found our Michael J Fox of Lyme Disease? It's a shame that symptoms have to become so horrible for so many people before changes are set in motion. Mr Cauldwell sounds truly compassionate and dedicated to changing things in the UK when it comes to denial of treatment for chronic Lyme.

John Caudwell, the billionaire founder of Phones 4u has called on the Government to join him in researching Lyme disease, claiming the illness is massively underdiagnosed and could be affecting many tens of thousands of people in the UK.

Mr Caudwell's plea came a week after he revealed that he and four other members of his family had contracted the illness, which is widely believed to be caught by being bitten by a tiny tick carrying the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium.

Mr Caudwell also revealed today that his son Rufus, 20, who has suffered years of mental health problems because of the disease, is now so severely ill that he has within the last three days started suffering episodes of psychosis and was "fighting for his life".
