THE STORY:

Lyme Disease Awareness:

My Journey with this disease has changed the way I view life!! I appreciate life so much more these days. I signed up for ironman a year ago before any health problems. Shortly after I was knocked to my knees with debilitating symptoms from this awful disease! I had numerous neurological problems, fatigue, the list could go on and on. Doctors dismissed my symptoms. I went through emergency room visits. Changed doctors several times. One did a MRI and found a lession on my brainstem. You can imagine how I felt about that being a father of two. Was told by one doctor that Iyme disease did not exist in Texas. I pursued the diagnosis of lyme with the push of a co-worker. After a few months of having no treatment I finaly got a positive test back of Lyme Disease. I started antibiotics and I have been getting better everyday. I was fortunate to get a fairly early diagnosis. Lots of people are not so lucky. Through my experience I have found little is known about this growing disease. I still have the goal of finishing the ironman. But now I am giving my race purpose. May is Lyme awareness month and that's exactly what you will be supporting with your donation. Let's fight for prevention and early detection.
