How to Help


If you would like to help create awareness about the MAP-Crohn's disease issue, there are several things you can do:

  • Refer people to this website
     
  • Contact PARA with breaking news stories or other information related to this issue
     
  • Write letters to local/national supermarkets and food chains regarding your concerns about the risk of MAP-contaminated foods being sold and served by them
     
  • U.S. citizens are urged to write their Congressmen/Senators about this issue.  For details about PARA's involvement with the U.S. Congress, visit the dedicated page "PARA's March to Congress"
     
  • United Kingdom citizens are urged to contact The Chronic Crohn's Campaign, a grassroots movement  in the United Kingdom, reaching out to people in the UK who are alarmed by the uncontrolled spread of MAP in the environment, as well as the growing evidence linking it to Crohn's disease.  For more information about The Chronic Crohn's Campaign, visit PARA's dedicated webpage MAP in the United Kingdom. 
     
  • Canadian citizens are urged to contact The Canadian Movement Against Paratuberculosis or MAP-Canada, a grassroots movement made up of and operated by Canadian patients with Crohn's disease, their families and friends.  They are reaching out to all Canadians who are alarmed by the uncontrolled spread of MAP in the environment, as well as the growing evidence linking it to Crohn's.  For more details about MAP-Canada, visit PARA's dedicated webpage MAP in Canada.

PARA needs your financial support!  PARA continues to lobby the U.S. federal agencies, create worldwide awareness and  work for increased funding for the pioneering researchers whose motivation is the prevention and cure of Crohn’s disease.  Will you join PARA, and help us to help them?

To date we have had many successes, although our task is far from over.  In order to continue our work effectively, it is imperative that we receive the financial support to do so.   Please visit the webpage Join PARA  for further details on how you can make a financial contribution to "PARA:  The Cause for a Cure for Crohn's Disease."
