    Dreambirdie posted this message from Bob Miller's Facebook page on another thread - please act on it, and do it now!

    No time to lose, the Ampligen decision is expected any time now. Pile on that pressure!

    "Patients who are able can call NBC News at 212-664-4444 and comment on the story below. Be sure to tell the person who answers why you are calling, they will put you through to a comment line where you can request for them to plesae cover this important News story Nationally, be sure to tell them where you are calling from.

    Many thanks to All who are helping, my wife and I could not do this without your help and support.

    Kindly, Bob"

    THIS IS THE STORY he is referring to: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/50666787


    Edit: Nico passed on this on another thread:

    someone commenting on Bob Miller's FB page said that she has been re-directed to send an email to NBC when she called the phone number. The email is: story@nbcuni.com

    I called NBC National News at the number given above and spoke with someone there. I faxed him copies of the local Reno coverage plus some additional information for him to look over, which he said he would do. Whether or not it will be covered on the national news, I don't know, but he did show interest in the story. Let's hope for the best.

    Just edited the original post to include this, passed on by Nico:

    someone commenting on Bob Miller's FB page said that she has been re-directed to send an email to NBC when she called the phone number. The email is: story@nbcuni.com

    Thanks to Nico - I checked Bob's page and the lady who posted that said that NBC had had quite a few calls so people are clearing getting in touch. She wrote, 'Just talked to a woman there who said she's gotten quite a few calls and sounded a bit exasperated as she doesn't have a say re stories or coverage. She asked that we write to: story@nbcuni.com'

    So, Please email rather than phone, I guess!

    Same here - news channels must be desperate for news at the weekends because nothing much happens so please keep emailing - we might have even more chance of success today!
