Helping With Lyme…One Person at a Time

Greetings friends, family, and neighbors,

Lyme Disease can become a very serious illness and even fatal if not caught early. Many of us suffering from the chronic version of this disease have found that not only does it lead to a diminished quality of life, but also isolation from family/friends who don’t understand the disease, and because most insurance does not pay for Lyme treatment and the countless medications and supplements required to get better – a heavy financial burden.

I have never reached out like this before, but I am hoping that we as a community can offer support to a single mother, here in Howard County, suffering from Lyme and her 12 yr. old son, who are struggling to survive.

We can’t help everyone with Lyme, but with your help we can surely reach out to one person at a time!

  1. Thank you to all of those who were generous in helping this woman! It warmed my heart and this woman was overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of strangers reaching out to help her and her son.
    Several people made generous donations.
    Two people even sent her bottles of supplements purchased online so that she can continue on a path toward healing.
    A business owner reached out and helped her with her rent so she didn’t have to go to court- what a blessing! She said she felt such relief and gratitude and huge weight lifted from her.
    A local business sponsored her and her son and provided a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, which she was able to enjoy.
    One Lyme leader and current patient, sent her $1000 toward getting a Picc line for her IV treatment (which she currently can’t afford and insurance has denied)!

    As if today, we raised $1,525 (not including the dinner and the rent paid directly to apartment) ! It’s amazing what we can do together (little by little) to help one person at a time!
