I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease November 2012. So far it has greatly affected my life. I have difficulty doing everyday things. I created this fundraising page in hopes to raise awareness for other Lymies who are struggling out there, and to shed light on this mystery of a disease. Lyme Disease can no longer go unnoticed, a tiny tick bite can infect you and change your life forever.
Symptoms include: Arthritis, Memory Loss, Nerve & Heart Damage.
Even though some of us look fine on the outside, we have a continuous battle to fight within ourselves day in and day out. My heart goes out to all of you who are struggling and who will struggle while this disease continues to spread.
Please make a donation, small or big, everything counts!

We do not talk enough about Lyme Disease. But it is a rapidly developing disease in Europe, the United States and Canada.
It is multiorgan (may affect various organs) and multisystem (may affect various systems). It evolves over several years or decades, through three stages (these stages is theoretical because in reality more or less differentiated, sometimes interspersed with periods of latency may overlap to some symptoms). Untreated and without spontaneous recovery in the first stage after a possible dormant phase, the disease can eventually affect directly or indirectly the majority of human organs, acute and / or chronic with different effects according to organs and patients, and ultimately lead to physical and mental disabilities. Sequelae and relapses are possible. The diagnostic criteria, screening, treatment, like the appearance of chronic disease are currently the subject of controversy in the medical world, among international experts.
Fortunately there are people who struggle to help, inform and support the person suffering from this disease. TBDAlliance is one of those wonderful people.
So for my birthday wish this year I would like to raise as much money for this wonderful organization that fights every day to stop this dangerous evolution of Lyme disease.
