Lyme Disease

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month Blog Post #22: Support Lymies


pay our of pocket

Lyme patients have to pay 90 to 100% of their treatment costs if they want to heal.  Chronic Lyme Disease treatment has been denied for decades by insurance companies.  Many sufferers or families of sufferers lose their home and life savings trying to heal. This shouldn’t happen.  It’s a crime!  I can only hope that this will change in the future.

Here is a list of way to support Lyme Patients.  Some organizations support research and some provide grants to patients that can’t afford testing and treatments.
