The Society

The Dr. E. Murakami Centre for Lyme Research, Education and Assistance was founded by Dr. E. K. Murakami and operates as a not-for-profit Corporation. We hold charitable status as registered with the Canadian Government, thereby allowing us to issue charitable tax receipts.

Dr. Murakami's passion for providing effective and life-saving treatment plans to victims of Lyme disease has been the core of the Centre's existence. His unending devotion to the wellness of all sufferers and his passion for bringing truth and justice to Canadians alike are the driving force behind the inception of the Centre. 

Our mission is simple. To provide unbiased, double blind, peer reviewed facts on Lyme and Co-Infections to those who need to know; doctors and patients alike. To educate the people in the Medical Community on research findings and facts surrounding Lyme and its co-infections. To offer support to sufferers and families of Lyme patients on an on-going basis, and most importantly, to work with governing bodies and assist in making permanent changes to ouLymeChat Forum.htmr existing protocols for the diagnosis and treatment plans for Lyme in Canada. Dr. Murakami would like this to be his lasting legacy; an organization that will continue the fight in his name, and funded by his efforts. The Society thanks you, on his behalf, for your support and belief in his efforts and his fight for Lyme in Canada.

Membership Based
We rely on Membership as well as fundraising to advance further educational seminars and lectures, unbiased research studies and the eventual development of our Lyme Assistance program. Our members include professionals and lay-persons. Every dollar of membership dues helps fund our research, education and assistance programs for Lyme disease and co-infections. 

The Centre exists on the valuable time and effort of volunteers. Many of these volunteers have been Lyme victims who feel compelled to make a difference. Others have been members who are interested in the challenges that we face within our healthcare system, and offer up their help. Others yet are family members of Lyme sufferers and understand all too well the importance of what we do. 

Together they make up the fibre of the existence of the Society, and all that it stands for. These efforts won't stop until necessary changes are made.
