BENEFITING: Global Lyme Alliance

Jesse Ruben

THE STORY:

My name is Jesse Ruben. I live in Brooklyn. I am a singer/songwriter. And I have Lyme Disease. I used to run the NYC Marathon every year for charity. It was a huge part of my life that I was very proud of. A couple of months after running in November of 2012, I started not feeling well. Then it got worse. And worse. And then much worse. I stopped traveling, writing music, or doing anything but going to doctors and taking medicine. I was worried I would never recover. I thought I was going to die. Some days, I wanted to. Luckily, with the help of some incredible doctors, and the support of many wonderful people, I have gotten my life back. Now I run every year to raise money for Global Lyme Alliance, the largest non-profit in the world dedicated to research and quality of life for people with Lyme Disease. I don't want what happened to me to ever happen to anyone else. Any amount you can give would be greatly appreciated. It means more to me than you can possibly imagine. I love you, I love you, I love you. - Jesse
