Hello Everyone,

My name is Anastiscia Chantler.

I contracted LYME DISEASE in 2008 but was not diagnosed until May 2013. Lyme disease is contracted by a tick bite that carries the bacteria Borellia Burgdferia and multiple co infections. It is a very dangerous and debilitating disease that is difficult to diagnose. It is called the mimicker of diseases as it copies others. Some of the more common symptoms are extreme fatigue, body and joint pain, muscle and skeletal difficulties, neurological difficulties, memory loss, brain fog, and digestive issues. The Lyme bugs are resiliant and smarter than other bugs because they burrow into organ cells and modify and share DNA thus, changing your cells. They can also teach other bugs how to hide and protect themselves from antibiotics and our own innate immune system. If untreate, it can cause multiple system organ failures.  If treated, health and functioning can be restored.  

Fast forward 6.5 years after intense loss and struggle, a medical professional friend suggested Sierra Integrative Medical Center in Reno Nevada, which specializes in Lyme treatment.  HOPE!

I spoke to two ladies who went through treatment, one who was in a wheelchair and could not speak, another bedridden in renal failure. Both have regained health and life.

Bedridden most days, unable to work, and failing in functioning, I needed to get there ASAP. I was going down hill faster with several disfunctioning systems and intestinal, muscle, nerve and brain problems.

Thank the Lord and on a gift I was able to get down here and have done one week of detox treatment but need to complete the treatment. All medical costs are out of pocket.  The cost of the treatment is between 2 to 3000.00 USA a week for 4 to 8 weeks. I was told I need 8 weeks. FAITH! 

During my health struggle and loss of assets and home over the last 6.5 years a caring Christian family opened their heart and doors and took me in. Ruth has become my sister. BLESSINGS!

Coming down here we discovered her illness is also due to Lyme and she has no treatment funds. 

My goal is to be well again and to be able to help my sister and others going through the same thing. If anyone is willing to help myself and this cause I GREATLY APPRECIATE this. I have been trying to keep a positive attitude through this and I know it will get worse before better, but am relieved now that it can get better.

We are all unique and have our own special gifts to offer in this life. We all have a future and I want to live and give back again to the fullest.
