MRSA Activists Rally For World MRSA Day
Date:5/5/2009

CHICAGO, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MRSA Survivors Network, the prominent advocacy group launches the inaugural World MRSA Day - Oct. 2nd and the official web site, www.worldmrsaday.org. MRSA activists call for world unity from governments, the healthcare industry and the community for a greater response to the MRSA epidemic-pandemic that is sweeping the globe at an alarming rate.

MRSA Survivors Network, the official organization for World MRSA Day, along with its sponsors - 3M, TecLabs, Cepheid and Pfizer - will kick-off events for World MRSA Day with an inaugural pre-launch international press conference and event at Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois USA on Oct. 1, 2009.

Following the international press conference, the first official event will be an awareness raising and remembrance ceremony for those who have lost their lives or suffered from this preventable disease. MRSA survivors, their families and all of those touched by this disease will finally have their voices heard. Government, healthcare industry personnel along with the community, students and fellow consumer advocates will join together in commemorating on this historic day.

Around the world, events and commemorative services will take place in communities on Oct. 2nd and throughout the month of October, MRSA Awareness Month.

We mourn together for all of the people who have died and who are now suffering. We acknowledge the reality that millions more around the world will become infected during the coming year and with no end in sight from this deadly bacteria that is antibiotic resistant and kills more people in the U.S. than AIDS.

World MRSA Day will provide us with a much needed opportunity to heighten awareness of how MRSA is transmitted and also acknowledge that there is no cure or vaccine for this preventable, mostly un-reported disease in which the true magnitude of the epidemic is still unknown.

Co-chairs for the event are: Jeanine Thomas, MRSA Survivors Network; Illinois State Rep. Patti Bellock; and Pat Merryweather, Sr. Vice President of Illinois Hospital Association.
