After a long struggle with a multitude of doctors and weekly ER visits and hospitalizations, my daughter and I were diagnosed with late stage Lyme Disease and Co- infections of Babesia and Bartonella. We need specialist treatment not covered by insurance.

Hello my name is Gretchen Seichrist and I am and artist and musician. I became suddenly ill in October 2015 and then last summer my daughter began showing similar symptoms. After a long struggle with a multitude of doctors and weekly ER visits and hospitalizations for both of us, I figured out that we had Lyme disease. I then went through another struggle to get the more accurate testing and navigate the hostility and mis-education of the mainstream doctors. Finally, I was able to get the tests. Now...
My 15 year old daughter and I have both tested and been diagnosed with Lyme disease and co-infections of Bartonella and Babesia. I'm offering paintings for donations to the treatment and specialist costs. Treatment for Lyme is not covered by insurance and is complex depending on the person and includes supplements & herbs recommended and then follow up visits every couple of months. 



Other non-cash needs:
Believe me there are so many non-monetary things that are very valuable to our healing. If you feel you want to contribute to us that way, it's much appreciated.
We also will contribute to you in that way as we are able.

Grocery store pick ups and errands
Helping with art sale (fliers and spreading the word)
Always looking for medicinal herbs
Activity support for my daughter (invites, rides, etc..)
Visits and calls from friends!
Mechanical help
more later....

Thank you,
Gretchen Seichrist
