Aaron's Lyme Disease Fund

$3,732 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 22 months

On May 2013, the night before I was supposed to go to Yosemite to climb Half Dome, my life changed forever.  I was up all night with intestinal pain.  This one symptom has grown to over 30+ symptoms I deal with on a daily basis.  I went from being a full time yoga teacher and massage therapist, full of energy, vitality, and with a true purpose in life to help people - to a life of trying to survive.

From thriving in every way...

... to just trying to survive the day.

Symtoms I Experience Daily (abbreviated):
- Extreme fatigue
- Sleeping no more than 3-4 hours/night
- Memory, cognitive, reaction speed, and vision greatly diminished.
- Haven't felt safe or capable to drive a car in almost a year.
- 24/7 pain throughout my body with fever symptoms
- Balance problems, dropping things, knocking things over.
- Neurologically impaired
- Constant GI (stomach & intestinal) pain, cramps, bloating

... and many, many more.

Things I've tried over the last 4 years:
- Various Antibiotics
- Chinese medicine w/ herbs and accupuncture
- Over 100 different herbal protocols (hundreds of bottles and tinctures).
- Seen 20+ traditional MD's
- Physical Therapy, Chiropractic.
-5 MRI's and 8 ultrasounds.
- 150+ IV infusions.
- Ozone IVs, UV light, Oxygen therapies, Rife, Coffee Enemas, Infrared Saunas...

... and TONS, tons more. Just know, I've exhausted 99% of what's out there to get well with zero results.

Infusio Stem Cell Treatment
My last real hope is to go to Infusio in Los Angeles. They do a 2 week intensive full of different IV's and therapies, finishing with harvesting my own stem cells and infusing them back into my body.  This is what I feel called to do to save my life and restore my livelihood. Many I know have been healed with this treatment when all else failed.

Why Help Me
I've always wanted to help people. It's my purpose. To inspire others. Share my gifts with the world. These are things I cannot do while sick.

When I get better, I will be able to work again. I will be able to share all my knowledge I've collected the last 4 years to educate others, help those with health issues seek solutions and answers, and be a voice to those who are too sick to speak.  And to fight the insanity of how 99% of what I've done, including doctor visits, aren't covered by insurance. 

This treatment costs $25,000. All the money this campaign raises will go towards my treatment. I cannot afford it at all, and I'm already in massive debt from the last 4 years. 

Thank you so much for helping me regain my health!

Love,
Aaron
