Hello Sarah lovers and supporters. Lets all chip in to support a friend in need to heal from Lyme's disease. I think our dear Sarah is 100% deserving of this support, don't you? More ...

Hello everyone

 Sarah Cormode is a pretty special lady, wouldn’t you agree?

I value her immensely in my life. She has such a big loving heart and a natural ability to make you feel good. I especially love her belly laugh, her kindness and her spirit of adventure!

Well, lately Sarah’s light has been dimmed. You may not be aware of it, but Sarah has been suffering from Lyme’s disease for over a year, and it’s had a drastic impact on her health. Though she does not look “sick”, she has intense headaches almost every day, is extremely sensitive to light and feels like she can’t think clearly.  Those are just a few of the symptoms she has shared with me.

Imagine: living with a constant headache and not being able to enjoy the sun because it makes the sledge hammer in your head feel worse! Horrible!

Lyme’s is a disabling disease that can be incredibly hard to diagnose and treat. Many in the Canadian Medical Community are not well equipped to help those with the disease, as they have not had much experience with its symptoms and their awareness that Lymes’ is moving North is low.

Many who suffer from it travel down endless dead end roads before finding the right treatment, if they find it at all. Many end up with chronic Lyme’s and very compromised health. Indeed, it is often a depressing, frustrating and expensive journey to finally get successful treatment.

And that is the reason why I am writing you today.

I have observed Sarah over the past year and it saddens me to watch this beautiful woman suffer. I wanted to help but did not know how.

Lately, I have been trying to convince her to see a doctor in the States who got recommended by a friend of mine who had Lyme’s. He is an expert when it comes to this disease, as both of his kids and wife were ill from it.

Confused and paralyzed at times by indecision, Sarah is also financially stretched.  So getting treatment anywhere in the US seems out of reach. 


So, today I am asking you to help a dear friend in need of financial assistance on her healing journey. Lets support her in getting the right treatment, so she may soon shine her bright light fully again!

The cost for the treatment is hard to determine and she has already spent thousands of dollars for previous treatments.

So, whatever you can afford to give is appreciated.

I had to convince Sarah to open herself to this effort.  I told her: instead of helplessly watching her suffer, it would make her friends feel much better to support her in this way than not helping her at all.

Here are the ways you can contribute:

  • On this platform - quick & easy (WARNING - 7% go into service fees to process the credit card payments)
  • Send a cheque made out to "ITF Sarah Cormode" and addressed to: Inga Michaelsen, 415 Wilkie Way, Salt Spring Island, BC, V8K 2J4; I will collect the money for her and give her the full amount by the end of this campaign.
  • Go to any Island Savings Credit Union and make a deposit to Trust Account #2345932; (Inga Michaelsen and Sam Darling ITF Sarah Cormode)
  • Or donate airmiles directly to Sarah for potential trips to the US.

A big THANK YOU. I appreciate your support and I know Sarah will be deeply, deeply moved by it!
