Lick the Lyme

The Bitter Battle Against Lyme Disease

Our goal $10,000

According to research Lyme Disease is the FASTEST GROWING infectious disease in the US. Over 325,000 people every year. If caught early it be treated and cured. Every year, thousands of people with Lyme Disease are misdiagnosed, and left to suffer without the medial treatment they need.

Lyme disease or the , "Great Imitator,"  is a bacterial infection spread by tick bites. Ticks are tiny spider-like critters that can be found outside in wooded areas and grassy fields. They can be the size of a poppy seed and their bite is painless,  so MOST people dont even know they've been bitten.  

Lyme disease can affect the brain, the nervous system, eyes, joints and even the heart. If not treated early it can result in neurological disorders, crippling muscle joint and muscle pain, and many other debilitating symptoms. 

Studies show MOST people affected by Lyme disease have SEVERE symptoms, REQUIRE a lot of medical attention, have a LOW quality of life and a HIGH rate of disability.

Think it can't affect you! Think again........

Lyme Disease affects more people than AIDS, WEST NILE AND AVIAN FLU combined.

Think you would notice Lyme disease! Think again......Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed as:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Alzheimer's
  • Autism
  • Flu

Think again!

Help us fight this bitter battle.

Its time.
